We’re not the only ones getting old becoming a classic. Printworks toasts 30 with a show of faux book covers (think Oliver Twist and The Scarlet Letter) by longtime friends of the gallery (think Karl Wirsum and Patricia Tamandl Niffenegger—Audrey’s mom).

12/3–2/12 Bob Hiebert and Sid Block celebrate the gallery’s 30th anniversary with Cover Stories. Among the 68 artists invited to mock up book covers: William Conger, Richard Hunt, Wirsum, Audrey Niffenegger—and her quilter mom, Patricia. Editor’s note: Chicago contributing events critic Ann Wiens has a piece in this show as well. 311 W Superior. printworkschicago.com.
