With all of its great bars and restaurants I am always looking for an excuse to go to Logan Square. The art exhibits at The Hairpin Arts Center, a champion of the arts in this thriving art area, is my usual reason for making the short train ride from downtown.
This weekend Remix Chicago will be worth the trip alone and the bars and restaurants will just be an added bonus. Created to spotlight artists working with recycled and re-purposed materials the fair will feature over 20 artists producing clothing, jewelry, fine art and furniture. Make sure and stop by the Cork & Barrel Furniture tent to see how they have taken used and often discarded wine and whiskey products and used them to create new, attractive and functional furniture.
Remix Chicago will also feature live music, food, beverages and workshops. The fair is August 30 & 31, from Noon until 10:00 p.m. It will run along Milwaukee Avenue starting at Fullerton and running several blocks south.
