Elphaba by Donald Topp

"Elphaba" by Donald Topp is at David Leonardis Gallery, where they are celebrating 29 years in the neighborhood

See how the recent progress with Covid-19 restrictions has affected local arts spaces and read up on all the happenings and exhibitions that you can enjoy from home or out and about in the neighborhood.

It's a new month with our latest WPB Weekend Arts Guide!

Please note that the current situation has a lot of businesses adapting quickly. Hours listed here may not be exact and are subject to change at any moment. Please check in with a business before visiting in person and be patient and understanding if hours differ from those here or a space has elected to change their reopening strategy.

Be sure to always wear a mask in public, in businesses, and while on public ways with others. Wash your hands frequently and remain properly distanced. Always respect a business' customer limit, health practices, and hygiene requirements. 

We also suggest visiting the ARTS FOR ILLINOIS website!
