Fall rolled in today, which means soon the weather will be dreadfully cold and people will be making less effort to attend art events. This makes us sad but for those of you who plan to hibernate this winter you might want to consider some new reading material to get you through. For starters I recommend spending some time checking out our website once launched at the end of October. My second recommendation is to spend a substantial amount of time with Jettison Quarterly. They have a handful of issues under their belt after launching in early 2009. The Jettison Quarterly Fall issue release party – disco balls and all – was held at the Empty Bottle this past Friday and this one is all about art! My suggested highlights include a Q & A with Theaster Gates, an interview with Jason Lazarus by Hadley Vogel, a look inside the Harold Arts Center and ACRE by James H. Ewert Jr, and Theresa Hill writes about the lack of art coverage in Chicago.

Last Friday I was walking southeast on Milwaukee avenue just before California on my way to Studio 54b when I see before my eyes about five people doing yoga on rolled out grass turf. It was apparently a public performance in conjunction with a day-long event advocating the increase of public spaces. I did not have time to stop and ask questions so unfortunately I am not sure about the organization that coordinated the mobile park. If anyone knows, please let me know. Fun times!

Today, we received a third donation to the SIFC IndiGoGo campaign! This time it came from local Chicagoan and owner of Bottles and Brushes, Stephanie King, ! Thank you Stephanie!
