Weekend Arts Guide: Transitions (6/25-6/28 2020)

By: WPB Arts
Sponsors: Wicker Park Bucktown SSA33
Date: June 25, 2020 - June 28, 2020

As Chicago continues cautiously reopening, more and more of the arts of Wicker Park and Bucktown hum back to life. Even so, there are plenty of ways to continue your engagement safely from home as well as many places that remain closed and impacted. Read our latest WPB Weekend Arts Guide to see what all is going on and how to be involved and show support for your favorite local arts spaces!

Please note that the current situation has a lot of businesses adapting quickly. Hours listed here may not be exact and are subject to change at any moment. Please check in with a business before visiting in person and be patient and understanding if hours differ from those here or a space has elected to change their reopening strategy. And be sure to always wear a mask in public, in businesses, and while on public ways with others. Wash your hands frequently and remain properly distanced. Always respect a business' customer limit, health practices, and hygiene requirements.
