Saul Steinberg was behind one of the most famous magazine covers ever: the March 29, 1976, issue of the New Yorker, which featured his depiction of big, bustling Manhattan against a background of fly-over country. And yet the cartoonist once said, "I don't quite belong to the art, cartoon, or magazine world, so the art world doesn't quite know where to place me." The current Art Institute show commemorating the 100th year of the artist's birth supports Steinberg's statement. »

HoZac Books Release Party Burlington October 02
HoZac Records has specialized in releasing skuzzy local garage rock and punk for damn near a decade, and now, in a fairly unprecedented move, it's entered the world of publishing.

Tuesday at the MCA Museum of Contemporary Art June 03
There's a pretty pleasant Tuesday to be had at the Museum of Contemporary Art if you so desire. Start by picking through veggies and kitchen-table-ready flowers at the weekly farmers' market (7 AM-3 PM), then, if you're an Illinois resident, come back later for free admission to the museum—or just trek through with produce in tow.

Eating Vincent Price is an underground dining experience—the location and menu is kept secret until the night of the dinner—inspired by the serio-comic horror icon's rare 1965 cookbook, A Treasury of Recipes. The four-course dinner is designed by chef Aram Reed and features dishes made from recipes straight outta Price's head; there's also a specialty cocktail menu. »
