Join us for Art After Hours (AAH) Powered by Gertie! Sponsored by Arete Wealth & Masterworks, AAH takes place from 5-8 pm on Friday, April 12 during EXPO ART WEEK and offers extended hours at over 45 galleries and creative spaces throughout the city of Chicago. With a myriad of exciting events unfolding throughout the evening, be sure to plan your night accordingly using the programming schedule, map and key located just below.

After exploring what the electric galleries and creative spaces around the city have to offer on Friday, head to EXPO on Saturday and/or Sunday to say hi to all of the cool people you met the night before at their exhibitor booths–or in the aisles! No matter your background–whether you’re an art aficionado or a newly minted collector — AAH is a great place to forge relationships with new galleries, artists and other collectors. We'll see you there!
