"Comfort" (No.2) by Roland Santana, in Heaven Gallery's "Mutations"

Looking for ways to stay warm this potentially snowy weekend?

Our latest WPB Weekend Arts Guide has plenty to do and see throughout Wicker Park and Bucktown or from your own couch! 

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.
