Mark Your Calendars: Artists Run Chicago 2.0 Starting in April

This event looks like a great opportunity for many family outings, starting in April and running into July, to explore creative spaces around the city!

Hyde Park Art Center will be posting more event details on their calendar as the event draws closer. If you happen to visit a gallery, museum, or cultural venue, keep an eye out for the free spring issue of LUMPEN Magazine for more information.

From HPAC's January 20th Press Release: "Hyde Park Art Center (5020 S. Cornell) is proud to celebrate the work of fifty artist-run spaces and organizations that fuel Chicago’s independent art scene in the upcoming exhibition Artists Run Chicago 2.0.  For the first time since 2006, all six galleries in the Art Center will be dedicated to one exhibition on view from April 5 until July 12, 2020.  The public reception with many of the artists will take place on Sunday, April 5, from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m and feature live performances, free family art-making workshops, and exhibition tours.
