Lots of cool stuff happening this weekend and I’ll miss all of it; so enjoy it twice over, I’ll be somewhere else.

Chris Silva & Lauren Feece @ Believe Inn

Believe Inn opens a new show this weekend titled Mating Call and featuring the kinda adorable collaborative work of husband and wife team Chris Silva (dope tunes) & Lauren Feece (dopest strokes). I had such a good time with Believe Inn’s last show, I’ll recommend this one sight unseen. Show opens Friday July 31st (with reception 6-10 PM) and will run through August 23rd @ Believe Inn, 2043 N Winchester.

Show opens Friday, July 31st with reception from 8-11 PM @Dovetail, 1452 W Chicago Ave.

Justin Cooper @ The Museum of Contemporary Art

Local SAIC professor and all around good guy Justin Cooper will be performing Vay Kay, another clutch of very wacked summer-centric vacation art, all weekend at the MCA. His first performance, Crater, actually started this last Tuesday, but you can catch some kind of video of it here and see the other three today (Noon – 5 PM), tomorrow (all day), and saturday (Noon – 5 PM) @ The Museum of Contemporary Art, 220 East Chicago Avenue.
