A quick reminder that the grassroots group Preservation Chicago is holding its spring benefit tonight, Friday, June 12th, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., at 1835 S. Halsted, the heart of the Pilsen Chicago Arts District. The $30.00 at-the-door price includes beer, wine and appetizers, as well as music by the muy caliente Latin band, Son Bel Viento and d.j. LiMbs. There'll also be an exhibition of art by the organization's members and local artists and photographers, which you'll be able to buy directly from the artists. Full information here.
Tonight is also this month's 2nd Friday's Gallery Night, with 35 galleries, representing the work of over 100 artists, open from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. You can download a printable map here.
A rainless evening, a good cause, and a gallery walk in one of Chicago's most historic neighborhoods - what's not to like?
