Lumpen's annual Select Media Festival gets under way this Friday with an opening reception at Iron Studios for The New Chicagoans, a group show of local avant-garde artists, including many GB favorites. On Saturday, the festival has organized a Bridgeport Art Walk as part of its focus on the South Side neighborhood. Then next week, watch for the Tactical Ice Cream Unit patrolling the city's streets. Check Slowdown for details and the festival's website for even more.
