1. City Selections: Art From the Galleries

Pictured is Put Cho' Money where Yo' Mouf is by Harold Mendez. The neon graffiti reads: "Street Dreams," and so do the silver and gold metalic teeth in his mouth. This thing should be on the cover of Artforum or Flash Art, that's a free tip. Maybe I'm two years behind, though. Anyway, this piece is hot and so is the whole show.

Through March 6
Chicago Tourism Center
72 E. Randolph Street

A cross section of the city's alternative spaces. A strong survey which unfortunately has come too late for many galleries that deserved the attention. Galleries include: Heaven (Wicker Park), MN Gallery (Bridgeport), Polvo Gallery (Pilsen), Suitable Gallery (Humboldt Park), and Western Exhibits (West Town).
