EXPO Chicago Returns This September

expochgo.jpgComing this September, come on out for EXPO Chicago's EXPO Art Week 2013 (Sept. 16-22) in conjunction with Choose Chicago and Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. This four-day event will be held in Navy Pier's Festival Hall and will host over 120 leading international galleries providing visitors with a mix of contemporary/modern art and design. Meanwhile, art and cultural festivities will take place all over the city.

During the Expo, keep and eye out and partake in citywide exhibits, gallery openings, installations, public art projects, music, theater and dance performances, and special dining experiences for residents and visiting international cultural tourists.

Special art exhibits will be held at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Other partnering museums will offer special viewings and ticketing options, including ACRE Residency, Chicago Architectural Foundation, Chicago Artists' Coalition, Hyde Park Art Center, The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago and threewalls.

"EXPO Chicago is a great tradition for our city and provides an opportunity for Chicagoans to celebrate visual arts and culture on a grand, international scale," said Mayor Rahm Emanuel in a press release. "EXPO Chicago enriches Chicago's neighborhoods through its off-site events and community partnerships, and drives economic opportunities and employment throughout the city. For years to come, EXPO Chicago will attract artists, dealers, collectors and curators from around the world to Chicago to enjoy our robust, diverse and dynamic arts experience."

Gallery Weekend Chicago will once again work with EXPO Chicago to bring notice to the city's best contemporary art galleries. Stop by for viewings of new exhibitions and artist talks at Chicago's top galleries.
