Expo Chicago Kicks . . . Off
I went to Expo Chicago while all the galleries were setting up.  It's one of the best art fairs I've ever seen--and it wasn't even fully installed. The art is kick ass.  Galleries have brought exemplary pieces.  The layout is spacious and flowing.  And there are a lot of extra efforts commissioned or enabled by the fair of exciting large scale works of art or installations.  In a time of fairs galore Expo Chicago stands out.
