A new exhibition, “Chicagoisms,” opens at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Saturday, April 5, 2014-Sunday, January 4, 2015
“Throughout its history the city of Chicago has inspired myriad urban and architectural innovations, many of which have had far-reaching influence. Indeed, urbanists and architects today still look to many of these historical moments in Chicago as exemplary instances of progression and development. The collection of the Art Institute’s Department of Architecture has extensive holdings on work within the region of Chicago, representing the important innovations, theoretical approaches, and architectural movements spurred by the city’s development. This exhibition surveys Chicago’s rich urban history and explores contemporary approaches to five Chicagoisms—key historical principles that have powered the city’s distinctive evolution. “
At Fulton Street Collective, this is one of the most unique events that is hosted by Harrington. If you are a designer, photographer or artist, established or aspiring, we invite you to participate in our second annual communal design event in the West Loop, You’re A Piece of Work.
Wall space is limited to 17×17″ per artist… Learn more and RSVP at yapow2014.eventbrite.com OR check out the listing on Harrington’s Facebook page under Events.

Getty, the Seattle-based photo agency, has decided to make a huge portion of its photos free. On Wednesday, the company unveiled the embed tool, which will allow users to include images on websites, such as non-commercial WordPress blogs. The eligible images also come with buttons for Tumblr and Twitter, where a link to the image can be shared.
