The brains behind the Chicago Alderman Project - Jeremy Schuech and Lauri Apple - have enjoyed quite a successful run with the show receiving all kinds of media attention from the New York Times, the Chicago Reader, the Tribune, and right here. But all good things must come to an end so tonight the show is closing down at its current space at Johalla Projects tonight and they're closing out with a party. The exhibit has been a smashing success and while it's closing up shop at the current locale tonight, look for it to pop up again somewhere else soon. There's also a great prize to coincide with tonight's party. The Chicago Reader is running a quiz on how much you know about local politics and if you take the quiz, you'll be entered into a drawing to win a Four Star commuter bike by KHS Bicycles from Roscoe Village Bikes. The luck devils at the Reader also have the complete collection for your online perusal.

Chicago Alderman Project Closing Party, Tonight, April 2, 7 - 11 p.m., Johalla Projects, 1561 N. Milwaukee Ave., FREE
