To some the South Loop may seem like an artsy neighborhood due to the presence of the art school, Columbia College. However, beyond college the South Loop houses numerous art galleries.

This Friday the Greater South Loop Association is hosting its third annual art walk to bring neighbors together while highlighting these creative businesses.

The walk is from 6–9 p.m. and attendees can start at any participating venue. There will be a bus from Reggie’s Rock Club making stops at each gallery throughout the night. It costs $5 to ride the bus, otherwise the event is free. At 9:00 p.m. the bus will return to Reggie’s for an after party. Be sure to check in with a GSLA board member at any gallery for a coupon to M Lounge.
