Bridgeport Artists Say "Walk This Way"

2007_10_32urban.jpgAlthough we aren't as vocal about it as when we were new to Chicagoist, we still love living in Bridgeport and still consider not moving down here sooner one of our greatest regrets as an adult. An increasing number of artists are starting to call Bridgeport their home base, lured by plentiful space, affordable rents and a welcoming community of artists who have been living down here for years.

As part of Chicago Artists Month, tomorrow's Bridgeport Art Walk brings together the well-known spaces (the Zhou B Center, mn Gallery, South Branch Studios, and 32nd & Urban) with newer galleries and artists spaces on a self-guided, at-your-pace walk throughout the neighborhood. You might even find us checking out the new places with Emmy the stereotype-busting pitbull.

The walk runs from noon-5 p.m. If you find yourself down in these parts, make sure to have a copy of our neighborhood eating and drinking guides with you.
