I’m not sure if “South Logan” is a euphemism for Humboldt Park, but if you’re out of school, bereft of a studio, and dream of a [nearly] free space, look no further. The South Logan Arts Coalition (SLAC) wants to hook artists up with empty spaces.
My homies at ACRE also opened their residency application this past Friday. I highly recommend applying before February 15th to take advantage of the fee waiver. Save $25 and prove to them you’re motivated at the same time.
Reports indicate that the unstoppable astro-craze has now triggered an entire exhibition. Organized by Hard Gallery on the occasion of the 2nd Floor Rear(hehe)Festival. They will present an art show based on astro-turf entitled Meandering: An Art Show Based on Astro-Turf.
On January 25th the up-and-coming closet/gallery, Queer Thoughts, opened a new exhibition, Shalom, featuring three siblings. Which Veit sibling’s work is the best? Decide for yourself.
Double-Trouble Power Siblings, Scott and Tyson Reeder and Scott and Paul Cowan were were all spotted at the former-Tony Wight building last Friday. Just the tip of Tyson’s Florida was visible at Western Exhibitions, and DOCUMENT held a reception for Scott C.’s solo exhibition, New Works. If you can’t get enough Cowan, both New Works and Paul’s MCA show are on view until the beginning of March.

This commission is only the second in a series of works by Chicago artists depicting the best team.
