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!)
