First Thursday.

Tomorrow is the First Thursdays gallery event in Chicago. The participating galleries, concentrated in the River North and West Loop neighborhoods, keep their doors open from 5 – 7. Since my office is smack dab in the middle of the River North locations, I'm going to try and stop in a few.

One in particular has this very large landscape with a farm I want to check out. Another has some over-sized motion photographs of countrysides. It's funny, but I think it's intimidating to walk into these empty places randomly and alone in the middle of the day, so I never do it. I think this First Thursday is exactly the kind of atmosphere I need to get myself in there. (And maybe a free glass of wine!)

  1. I would love to go with you but I leave at noon. I know what you mean about the intimidation level, but they are probably just glad to have people in the store. I'm sure they aren't selling as much in this economy. Have fun!
