Mission
Arts and About is a blog of personal reflections on the visual, musical and literary arts, primarily in Chicago. Coverage features not only the city’s major arts organizations but also spotlights emerging artists and organizations. News of a national nature appears when it is deemed sufficiently significant and relevant to readers locally.

Suggestions for inclusion are welcome. Submit your idea along with contact information.
