Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

Edition Chicago is an inaugural showcase at the Chicago Artists' Coalition for Chicago galleries to display affordable work. The event also takes place on Saturday.

Ten years after the death of Chicago outsider artist and musician Wesley Willis, Project Onward commemorates him with an exhibit featuring his drawings and sculptures. It opens tonight with a preview party, which coincides with the art center's open-studio night, Third Friday.

Local rockers Disappears play at the Empty Bottle tonight. Kevin Warwick says that "Recently . . . Disappears have been stretching out into negative space, using strategically deployed emptiness to push their druggy, creepy sound into deeper and darker places." Weekend, Outside World, and DJ Bud Sweet open.
