As in Richard M., not Stewart, Jon. This exhibition, a coproduction with Johalla Projects at Chicago Urban Art Society, fills some 3,800 square feet of gallery space with portraits and other works dedicated to the outgoing mayor by more than 20 local artists. The man himself has been invited, and while there’s no word yet on whether he’ll attend, we always say the more, the mayorier. Bonus: The opening is sponsored by Old Style, which equals free beer.
Opening reception Dec 10 from 6 to 11; exhibition continues through Jan 8. Chicago Urban Art Society, 2229 S Halsted. chicagourbanartsociety.org -Chicago Mag.com: Chicago Guide Recommendations.
