Get better acquainted with the city’s neighborhoods during Chicago Artists Month 2013, starting the end of September and running through October.
The annual artists celebration showcases Edgewater and Uptown Sept. 27-29, Portage Park Oct. 4-6, South Shore and South Chicago Oct. 11-13, Pilsen and Little Village Oct. 18-20 and East Garfield Park Oct. 25-27. But those dates and places don't tell the whole story.
The best plan to see neighborhood sights, shops, galleries and art is to do some of the following art walks:
Liincoln Square’s Art Walk is 7-10 p.m. Oct. 18, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Oct. 19 and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Oct. 20.
Chicago Artists Month is a collaboration of the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and the Chicago Park District. For information on open studios, gallery shows and other events visit Chicago Artists Month.
