April’s Always Apt For Hopping

For those of you who are scheduled to attend next Tuesday’s field trip: bring $6.00 with you for a round trip Metra fare (that’s the student ID discount rate) and $2.25 for the CTA (if you bring, say, $100.00, that leaves you $91.75 for a gourmet luncheon). We’ll take our attendance at the school before we get bussed–to the rail depot–then we’ll commute downtown and walk to the Cultural Center to see two, or possibly three, exhibits. There may be time for the Gage Gallery as well, one block away, and nourishment of the food sort. We’ll ride the Brown Line El to visit galleries in the River North neighborhood; then we’ll hoof it back to the 1:30 train and return to Borington at 2:32.

Here are links to current exhibits.
