Southsiders have their cake and eat it too this month with the Sox in the World Series and the 4th of a series Select Media Festivals going on this weekend through November 13th.
Being a fellow southsider myself I'm glad to see this festival come South from its former too-hip-for-it's-self digs up in "Bucktown."
This Friday, October 21st catch the New Chicagoans Exhibition at Iron Studios featuring over thirty outsider artists based in Chicago (Bridgeport, community of the future, well represented).
churchbus drummer (and Cardboard Art Show Curator) Al Pocius has a few pieces in the show as does John Salhus (whose "losing boxer" paintings were fantastic) and Duk Ju Kim (I own one of hers and not a week goes by that I don't learn something new from it).
Next week head back to Iron Studios and catch churchbus with the Doors and the Smiths (it sounds too good to be true, I know!).
