We’re very excited about this: join us this Friday, May 18th, for the opening of Envisioning the Bloomingdale. This is an exhibit of early visions for the elevated park we’re all hoping to see emerge on the Bloomingdale line. This Friday is the kick-off reception, free and open to the public. It’s from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Acme Art Works, 1st floor, on 1741 N Western Ave.
The exhibit is sponsored by the Bloomingdale Trail Collaborative, but it’s primarily the work of the Chicago Architectural Club. They’ve put together a terrific collection of conceptual pieces from architects and planners to artists and kids. It’s going to be very cool. (Check out the great poster they did for it.)
The show runs through June 3rd. It’s open Thursday through Sunday, noon to 5 p.m., and by appointment.
Hope to see you Friday night!
