Lots and lots of art things happening this weekend. Friday kicks it off with Pilsen Open Studios, where over a hundred Pilsen artists will open their studios to the public. That continues through Saturday and Sunday when there will also be the Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest -- a Rogers Park festival filled with art, theater, music, food and drink -- and the Intuit Folk and Outsider Art Show -- a fundrasier for the non-profit Intuit. And if you're still looking to fill your art-calendar, you can always get to know your local artists.
