We've got another full, fresh WPB Week[IN]d Arts Guide to pull all the artful spaces of our neighborhood into one virtual resource at your fingertips! There's still a ton to do and see in the WPB art scene, even if from your own home. So take a look and stay engaged!

This guide lists the galleries, bookstores, theaters, shops, and venues help make the Wicker Park Bucktown art scene, with each listing containing links to the website as well as any social media, online shops, virtual programming, or fundraisers so you can stay engaged and show your support! All are an invaluable part of our neighborhood. So take advantage of this time to enjoy the arts of WPB and show a little love to the people and places that make it possible!

We also suggest visiting the new ARTS FOR ILLINOIS website!
