With another full week of shelter-in-place officially under our collective belts, and now another full month to go, we present to you our latest WPB Week[IN]d Arts Guide. To help our neighborhood arts organizations, spaces, and businesses that have been affected and to help the public stay engaged with these places while staying at home, this guide has compiled a long and thorough list of galleries, bookstores, theaters, shops, and venues that are part of the Wicker Park Bucktown art scene. Each listing links to the website as well as any social media and mentions any online shops, virtual programming, or fundraisers currently underway. 

These spaces rely on patronage and public support and many are offering online sales, virtual exhibitions and workshops, books and records to wait out the pandemic, and a variety of local, quality artworks and artisan goods. Some have digital archives and programming that can prove educational, enlightening, and entertaining during these times. All are an invaluable part of our neighborhood. So take advantage of this weekend to enjoy the arts of WPB and show a little love to the people and places that make it possible!

DON'T FORGET TO CHECK OUT THE NEW ARTS FOR ILLINOIS WEBSITE!
And if you are a practicing artist and an Illinois resident, or an Illinois-based arts organization, and experiencing financial loss or hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can apply for the Arts for Illinois Relief Fund! Not an artist but want to support some? You can make a donation!

Artists living, working, or showing in the Wicker Park Bucktown community are encouraged to join our WPB Artist Registry! SSA #33 is working to update and maintain our public registry of local artists, artisans, and makers in a better attempt to connect the arts and artists with the public.
