Spend an evening in Wicker Park, Chicago’s historic arts neighborhood. During the artist renaissance of the late 1990s, the neighborhood was the hub for artists. Now, many of them have left….except for Heaven Gallery.
Visit one of the last remaining loft galleries in Wicker Park. With warm wood floors and house music always pumping during the openings, the gallery is a true testament to Chicago’s cultural legacy and guaranteed to be a good time.
Join Heaven for the opening of “Gift Economies,” a group exhibition curated by Simone Whiteley-Allen and featuring works by Stevie Emrich, Zaiasia Jones, Sofía Fernández Díaz, Jeremy Carter Doey Buff, Tatiana Sky, Amy Pearl Lang, Hallie Off, Alex Bradley Cohen, Alberto Aguilar, Anya Smolnikova, Corrine Slade and Simone Whiteley-Allen.
Heaven Gallery stays open one hour later than most openings, making it the perfect after-party spot. End your evening with a nightcap at Rainbo Club (1150 N Damen Ave, Chicago, IL 60622), Wicker Park’s longtime artist watering hole. With the cheapest drinks in the city, a cocktail will only set you back $4 :) Don’t forget to snap a picture in the classic, wet-developed photo booth.
