Art Chicago at Merchandise Mart April 15, 2010 Here’s something for all my fellow chicago art lovers out there who love to wander, absorb, and enjoy creative wonderful thoughtful things! Art Chicago, one of my favorite art events of the year, takes place at the Merchandise Mart from April 30 – May 3, with an Opening Preview on April 29th. This celebration has been a mainstay in the art community nationwide w/ 30 editions over the years… bringing together the most passionate artists, collectors, curators, and people who just simply love to enjoy an awesome visual show. It ranges from contemporary to modern art, from galleries all over the world, new and established, coming together to preview art in a variety of different forms. Paintings, photography, video, sculptures, cool instillations and more…there is something for everyone. Another super cool element of Art Chicago, in my opinion, involves added expert panel discussions and seminars taking place on site for all attendees, provided by Converge Chicago. The Converge Chicago advisory committee includes Franklin Sirmans, Los Angeles County Museum of Art; James Rondeau, Art Institute of Chicago; Julie Rodrigues-Widholm, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Hamza Walker, Renaissance Society; and Anthony Huberman, Contemporary Art Museum Saint Louis. Some local galleries of note that will be exhibiting are Judy Saslow Gallery, Ken Saunders Gallery, Packer Schopf Gallery , Linda Warren Gallery, David Weinberg Gallery, Roy Boyd Gallery, Russell Bowman Art Advisory, and my personal favorite, carrie secrist gallery!
