WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND
Up next in our series of weekend plans from notable, in-the-know locals (a.k.a. people we like): the longtime Chicago artist Richard Hunt. Although Hunt is perhaps best known for his prolific career creating public sculpture, a new show at Think Art, Richard Hunt: A Force of Nature, also includes works on paper. Hunt ripped this weekend’s page from his agenda to share with Chicago Guide:
Fri, Oct 8
Work in studio 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. Stop early to get ready to participate in the opening of my exhibition at Think Art from 5:30 until 9. After that, dinner with friends who hang around until the very end.
Sat, Oct 9
Work in the studio in the morning. In the afternoon, attend a private concert of early music at the Archbishop Quigley Center hosted by my friend Neal Ball. After that, on to dinner at the Union League Club and then to a CSO concert where I am anxious to hear Beethoven’s Third Symphony.
Sun, Oct 10
Long breakfast reading newspapers. Then a little light work—mail, income taxes, clean up studio, etc.
GO: Richard Hunt: A Force of Nature runs Oct 7–Dec 10. Hunt will attend two public receptions, Oct 7–8 from 5:30 to 9 each evening. Think Art is located at 1530 N Paulina, Ste F. For more information, visit thinkartsalon.com.
