VERSION

Next Art Chicago may have been canceled, but this homegrown annual arts-and-beyond fest picks up the slack. For its eleventh year, Version sets up camp in Bridgeport for a month loaded with exhibits, performances, and local pop-up shops.

DETAILS:

5/1–31 Bridgeport: Community of the Future. Billed as “a month-long urban experiment,” this event brings together Bridgeport locals and outsiders alike with the aim of remaking the hood into a vibrant cultural and economic destination. Take in exhibitions by artists such as Jason Lazarus (work pictured), plus nightly performances, parking-lot flea markets, roving eateries, and temporary shops. And keep your eyes peeled for spur-of-the-moment happenings—new events will be added throughout May. Schedule and locations: versionfest.org.
