This evening marked the successful closing of the first Artropolis–Chicago’s celebration of Art, Antiques & Culture. For four days, tens of thousands of Chicagoans and visitors enjoyed the best of art & entertainment in five major events at The Merchanside Mart.

One year ago, Chris Kennedy made the bold and very quick decision to save Art Chicago when the sponsor could not successfully open the doors. In a matter of a day, Chris moved Art Chicago to The Merchandise Mart and saved the event. In this past year, Chris and his dedicated team at The Merchandise Mart developed a weekend of art unlike anything ever done in Chicago before. Congratulations Chris!

The dates for Art Chicago and Artropolis are already set for May 2-5, 2008 at The Merchandise Mart. Don’t miss it!
