ArtChicago / Artropolis & ….

More than five art fairs in Chicago this weekend!

Art Chicago, The International Antiques Fair, The Artist Project, The Intuit Show, and Bridge Art Fair.

Paul Klein of Art Letter offers a fine guide.
Here’s the list of galleries at ArtChicago.

Will ArtChicago rise from the ashes? Can the city support a great fair? Will people buy, will dealers return, can we compete with the sexy still hot Art Basel Miami? We’ll soon have some indications when ArtChicago opens tomorrow night.

Plus, in a large tent in front of the Merchandise Mart, a performing arts component!

Good excuse to get in this lovely photo, seen on buses and subway entrances about town, of the Joffrey’s Light Rain.
