You know, I've always wished there was a site which listed some of the more independent art gallery spaces in Chicago. Well, whaddaya know? There is. is a barebones site with upcoming openings and links and profiles to art spaces in the city concentrated to the burgeoning Pilsen artists area. There is also a link to, a searchable art database. Nifty!
