Why not turn your front room into a white-cube art gallery, host events for the best local emerging artists, and sell their work to forward-thinking collectors? This living-working situation is practically a Chicago tradition and has been good to Bill Gross, who started 65Grand in 2005 in his West Town apartment. Now operating in a space across the street, the gallery promotes a leading style of Chicago painting and conceptual art—by the likes of David Leggett, Mara Baker, and Shane Huffman—that’s thankfully getting the showcase it deserves.
