WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND
Our series on weekend plans from notable, in-the-know locals is taking the week off. Maybe you should, too.
FREEBIES OF THE WEEK
galleries The Chicago Street Art Show
If you’ve either a) watched Exit from the Gift Shop three or more times, or b) surreptitiously slapped a sticker on a stop sign, wall, or other stationary object, this show’s for you: a roundup of some of the city’s best street (and occasionally commercial—you know, to pay the rent) artists, including Cody Hudson, Juan Angel Chavez, and You Are Beautiful.
GO: Opening reception 5/13 from 6 to 11. Exhibition continues through 6/4. Chicago Urban Art Society, 2229 S Halsted. chicagourbanartsociety.org
