Are you ready to fall in love all over again? Because Chicago is OPEN, and eager to show you a whole lot of love with a staggering collection of new and classic summer adventures to share. You ready? Here's our top five! Gosh, we've missed you!
The Art of Bansky, Unauthorized Private Collection, opens in Chicago July 1. Boasting over 80 original works, the "unauthorized" exhibit is being billed as the largest Bansky exhibit ever assembled. Banksy exhibits are a very rare phenomenon because the artist himself is elusive, anonymous, and not much for exhibiting his works anywhere but the streets. This Banksy exhibit, deemed unauthorized, is comprised from private collections . . . which makes this experience all the more covert! Even the location is being kept under wraps . . . for now! If you love Banksy, and a little bit of mystery, this could be the highlight of your summer!
Hanging with the art theme for another second, the Immersive van Gogh Exhibit is on fire, and thrilling art lovers on the daily. This is not your Father's art Exhibit, this is all digital, monstrous, and as the title implies . . . immersive. Tickets are hard to come by, but they're out there . . . Immerse yourself in some really cool digital masterpieces. Seriously, Gogh!
You'd have to have been living under a rock if you missed the news that LOLLAPALOOZA is back in 2021 and jam-packed with artists you're gonna want to see! Post Malone, Foo Fighters, Tyler The Creator, Megan Thee Stallion, SuicideBoys, need we go on? Tickets are on sale and if you can't get them . . . make friends with someone that has ‘em!
Okay, so how about some Pop Culture on Crack?! . . . If you love all things Super Heroes get yourself over to the Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) for Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes Exhibit. This high-octane exhibit takes you deep into the Marvel galaxy with interactive exhibits that go in-depth about the origins of some of your "superest" of heroes. Plus, there are original film costumes, props, comics, that might actually give you that Spidey feeling! This actually may be the closest you ever get to a Super hero . . . or their stuff, anyway!
What is Chicago without festival season? Luckily this year . . . we don't have to find out . . . because the Chicago Music/Art/Food Festivals are BACK. Soon we'll be chowing down on street food, swaying to the vibe of live bands, checkin' out some art, soaking in the summer rays of the 312 . . . all while likely, drinking a 312! For the skinny of the what's and where's, hit it HERE!
See . . . We told you there's a lot to love in the Summer of 2021! And btw, Summer at ACME starts as low as $119 per night. Get here!
