By Carrie McGath in Arts & Entertainment on Sep 14, 2017 10:15PMLast night we got a peek into the city’s major annual contemporary art fair, running through Sunday in Navy Pier’s Festival Hall, and it did not disappoint. Expo Chicago hosts hundreds of galleries from around the country and the world as they showcase the works of artists they represent. The diversity of medium and styles throughout the fair is apparent, but some galleries really stand out this year, presenting artwork that is timely to our current political climate, or offering simply beautiful works that catch the eye. Here are just a handful of galleries that truly shined at the preview and should not be missed this weekend.
Museums, at their core, are about storytelling: who we are as a people, where we have been, how we got to today. And the most exciting, the most fundamental, tool in their storytelling box is the artifact, the thing that has been preserved, collected and presented to the public so that we can connect with a story.
Playing on the beach? Been there, snapped that. Monkeying around at the playground? Yep, took that pic a billion times. If you need fresh photo ideas — and some new fodder for your Instagram feed — get a change of scenery and check out Chicago’s awesome street art.
