Its an institutional weekend!

Heartland @ Smart Museum

This weekend’s biggest show is at University of Chicago’s Smart Museum this week. Featuring work from a variety of artists, including and hopefully highlighted with a new huge wall piece by Deb Sokolow, Heartland brings out artists from and work speaking to the middle of America, which I guess we’re technically in.  While the show already opened last night, it will featuring an ongoing series of events and tours and talks, including a performance today by Whoop Dee Doo!, a film screening in Wicker Park, and more. Heartland runs through to January 17th, 2010 @ the Smart Museum, 5550 S. Greenwood.

Another cool institutional draw, Daria Martin‘s specially commissioned, multi-dimensional film Minotaur will go up for public review this weekend. Looks like a pretty dense piece, and at ten minutes could allow for a few views to appreciate the depth. The exhibition opens this Saturday, October 3rd, 10:00 AM @ the Museum of Contemporary Art.

There’s always more to see, but those are my picks this week. Also, if you’re in the Wicker Park/Bucktown area, stop by the Flatiron building and Sapere Art for their Points of View art competition which I helped judge. If you’re lucky you might even spy one of my paintings in the building.

As always, get out while you still can.
