"Lights on 2020", Rebeca Soto's installation at Agitator Co-operative Gallery...closes this weekend

See what spaces are open, what's going on in person or online, and how to get your art fix at a gallery or from your couch! No matter what, there's sure to be something of interest for everyone as you can see in this 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. And 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!
