Zhou Brothers' Exhibit

Chicago-based Zhou Brothers have a great exhibit up at the Cultural Center of Chicago. From the center: "This exhibition marks the 30th anniversary of the Zhou Brothers’ artistic collaboration and will consist of paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture. The exhibition itself is a collaboration, a co-presentation by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs at the Chicago Cultural Center and the Elmhurst Art Museum, with complementary portions presented in each location. The Zhous came to Chicago from China in 1986 and have since garnered international acclaim for their synthesis of Eastern traditions and Western abstraction." The exhibit is free and is up in the exhibit hall until January 2, 2005, so hop to it! The Cultural Center is located at 78 E. Washington St., Chicago. For more information, call (312) 744-6630.

Florasonic Sound Installation

"Next 3 Miles" Florasonic Sound Installation will be available for listening and viewing at the Lincoln Park Conservatory today from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m., for free. "Florasonic, a series of sound installations, is an effort to have artists respond -- through sound -- to the evocative environment of the Fern Room. The current florasonic project is 'Next 3 Miles,' by composer Amnon Wolman. Using sounds recorded throughout the city, Wolman celebrates the multi-faceted cultural landscape of Chicago. The result is an imaginary "sound walk" that takes us through the city and through the composer's imagination." Presented by Experimental Sound. The conservatory is located at 2391 N. Stockton Drive, Chicago.
