FREEBIE OF THE WEEK
galleries The Free Store
If you haven’t browsed the Free Store—a gallery-installation-slash-swap-meet where all goods on display are free for the taking—now’s your last chance. The bazaar features everything from comic books to clothes and wraps Saturday with a reception the artist-organizers promise will be “full of surprises.” We’ll settle for the Northern Exposure cookbook, available as of late Tuesday afternoon.
GO: Thru Mar 6. Gallery 400, Art & Design Hall, UIC, 400 S Peoria. gallery400.aa.uic.edu
ALSO THIS WEEK: The exhibition Fair Use: Information Piracy and Creative Commons in Contemporary Art and Design tackles the issue of artists’ rights at Columbia College, while a new gallery, White Box Space, launches in the Ukrainian Village.
