Fodor's Review

North of the Merchandise Mart and south of Chicago Avenue, between Orleans and Dearborn, is a concentration of art galleries carrying just about every kind of work imaginable. Virtually every building on Superior Street between Wells and Orleans houses at least one gallery, and visitors are welcome to stop in. Free tours leave from Chicago and Franklin every Saturday at 11; galleries also coordinate their exhibitions to showcase new works on some Friday evenings (check the Chicago Gallery News for dates). Although many artists have ditched this high-rent district for the cheaper, more industrial West Loop, there is still a lot to see.
