UChiArtsSpring14CoverUChicago Arts: A quarterly guide to arts & culture at the University of Chicago

From the Logan Center and the Arts Incubator to Court Theatre and the Smart Museum, the University of Chicago is home to renowned arts destinations, and world-class artists and emerging creators alike.

Fall Forward, Newcity’s Guide to the New Season, publishes August 28

082913Fall is coming—though for many of us, it’s here already.

As the publication of record for Chicago culture, a big part of our August is the creation of the annual bible of fall events planning, Fall Forward, wherein we cull the very best, the most essential events of the new season for our audience. Not to mention, new restaurant and bar openings, and a survey of the upcoming season in design.

Do we even need to say there is no better place to advertise a fall event? Of course not. But remember, not only will our audience be lining up for all the shows and openings, but we’ll be meeting friends for drinks, or grabbing dinner, before or after the show. So bars and restos? Miss this one at your own peril.

Of course, before we even head out the door, we’ll need to swap our swimsuits and flip-flops for more suitable attire, not to mention trade in the shaggy, sun-bleached look we’ve been sporting for a ready-for-primetime coif. Fashion boutiques? Salons? Get the picture? We hope so. Continue reading
