Bridgeport Art Center exhibition space
Galleries, museums + more in Chicago June 19 - July 10, 2013
The official first day of summer is this Friday, June 21.  We're ready for it!  We've highlighted some upcoming events, including several that take place outdoors - a few suggestions to start the summer off right.

The Bridgeport Art Center invites you to an opening reception on Friday for two new shows and their Third Fridays Open Studios.  The Randolph Street Market returns during the last weekend in June with lots of one-of-a-kind finds.

CGN's Calendar of Events and Openings pages have a range of events listed that take place now through August.  The Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park makes for a great day trip; other upcoming events include Lakeside Legacy Art Park's Lakeside Fest + a special one-night event at the Field Museum featuring artist Marco Nereo Rotelli.

There's lots to do - enjoy & we'll see you in the galleries!
