Newcity Magazine, the weekly alt-mag for which I freelance, just launched its sister site, Newcity Art. They feature solid coverage of the visual arts scene in Chicago, along with artist profiles, images and exhibit recommendations.

Oh – & the Geraldine Ondrizek show? If you’re in or around Chicago, I highly recommend taking a swing by the International Museum of Surgical Science & checking it out. It’s a brilliant merging of personal and political, as well as being just really, really pretty. Also, since it’s housed in the IMSS, you don’t have to worry about losing your macho cachet, because there is a kidney stone the size of a baby’s head right around the corner. So you’ve got two awesome things for the price of one.
