Weekend Arts Guide: The Reopening Continues (6/11-6/14 2020)

By: WPB Arts
Sponsors: Wicker Park Bucktown SSA33
Date: June 11, 2020 - June 14, 2020

Image Credit: A mural by Damon Lamar Reed and Pugs Atomz on the plywood of Wayward's storefront, sponsored and organized by Sounding Boards Chicago. Many such murals have been painted around the neighborhood. If your arts organization has any ideas for preservation or exhibition of these works, please reach out.

Chicago's Cautious Reopening continues as the neighborhood slowly comes back to life just in time for summer! Read up on our latest WPB Weekend Arts Guide: The Reopening Continues to see who in the neighborhood art scene is open and how you can stay engaged from home with those who have not reopened yet. 

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.
