This Weekend: Chicago Arts District 2nd Fridays Gallery Night, 12/14

In a big (and expensive) city like Chicago, finding inexpensive ways to connect with culture can often be a daunting task. Luckily for Chicagoans looking to get their cultural fix, the Chicago Arts District in the Pilsen neighborhood hosts their Second Fridays Gallery Night on the second Friday of every month. The next Chicago Arts District Gallery Night will be this upcoming Friday, December 14, with the receptions starting at 6:00pm and ending at 10:00pm. 

This monthly event consists of opening receptions for exciting new exhibitions at all of the 30 participating galleries of the Chicago Arts District. It is a truly fantastic and fun way to explore the art of today and to learn about contemporary artists. But, perhaps one of the best parts of this event is that it is completely free (unless of course you are looking to purchase some art). Yet, if that is not enough of an incentive, most of the galleries will have an open bar with free wine for guests. 

Also, here are the Gallery Nights for Spring 2013:

The Chicago Arts District Galleries are located in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, right off of South Halsted and 18th Street. More information on the Chicago Arts District or the participating galleries can be found at
