It's a new month with our latest WPB Weekend Arts Guide! See how the recent progress with Covid-19 restrictions has affected local arts spaces and read up on all the happenings and exhibitions that you can enjoy from home or out and about in the neighborhood.

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. 

We also suggest visiting the ARTS FOR ILLINOIS website!
