Guerilla Truck Show
First I went to Packer Schopf Gallery since I passed it on the way to Fulton Market.
I also checked out the Mars Gallery.
Then I went to Fulton Market to see the trucks.
Maleness to Manhood
This powerful art show featured work by a large number of African-American male artists and addressed the many different issues they face in our current society.
Renegade Craft Fair
As always, I went to the Renegade Craft Fair in Wicker Park and had a great time. I feel bad that I didn't write a post about it and all the great artists and crafters I saw there, but I don't even know what I did with all their business cards.
I really enjoyed the second annual Expo Chicago show at Navy Pier this year. It was such an inspiring experience. My apologies for not getting more of the names of the artists.
Fountain Art Fair
The Fountain Art Fair was a satellite fair of the Expo Art Fair, held at the new Mana Contemporary Studios building on Throop.
This interactive kinetic sculpture piece was sort of like a musical Rube Goldeberg device. Swinging on the swingset plays the instruments.
They also have a nice little cafe in the building, which is good because there are so few restaurants nearby.
Who knows, maybe I will get a studio there one day.
