This Week: Art Chicago and NEXT Fair.

It's that time of year once again. This weekend will be, not only Indy's own First Friday art event but also the newest installment of what was branded as Artropolis in Chicago. In other words, Art Chicago and the emerging NEXT fair. I have made it up for the last 5 events and will be there again this year. Take advantage of the opportunity to view a lot or art from a number of galleries from around the globe. If you rarely get the chance to see art in other locals, its worth the drive to Chicago. I hope to see a number of you up there.

Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc. Art Group includes: The Armory ShowNEXTToronto International Art FairVOLTA and VOLTA NY.
