Art fairs can sometimes be an overwhelming experience due to the sheer amount of artwork on display and the large crowds that they draw. However, don’t let this deter you from being part of the excitement this fall art season and join us for a private tour of EXPO CHICAGO (September 27-30, 2018), led by esteemed colleague Susan Musich.
Susan will orient our group of Spudnik Press members to the fair’s layout and highlight specific galleries among the 2018 exhibitors (Spudnik included!), as well as top artists and artworks. Additionally, during our 60 minute tour, our members will have personalized access to gallery owners and representatives and tailored information about site-specific artworks and exhibitions. The 2018 edition of EXPO CHICAGO will align with Art Design Chicago, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art, to present various programs and events throughout EXPO ART WEEK (September 24–30, 2018) including panel discussions, performances, and activations across the city. For more information about EXPO CHICAGO visit www.expochicago.com.
This program is part of our Professional Practice: Off-site Visit series, intended to introduce members to the numerous and diverse art spaces and individuals that contribute to Chicago’s vibrant arts landscape. In addition to connecting with other professionals in the city, these visits present our members with a range of resources and career paths.
