Panel from the new "Illinois Landscape" mural by Sam Marts being unveiled at the Bucktown-Wicker Park branch of the Chicago Public Library this weekend

Our latest WPB Weekend Arts Guide has all the exciting openings, happenings, and details for the last weekend before fall is officially here! Between new exhibitions and a brand new neighborhood mural, there's still plenty to be excited about for this gorgeous end to the week.

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!
