Going to the ALA Annual Conference next week? Check out the Chicago ArtsGuide, created by the ACRL Arts Section. Accessible via mobile devices and desktops this Google Map is a selective guide to cultural attractions and events in/near Chicago. Each genre of art has its own layer/color, so you can easily identify whichever landmark you’re most interested in seeing. The conference center is also included on the map for convenient navigation.
Plan to take pictures of the arts/performances you attend during the conference? Share your photos via the Arts Section Facebook page or tweet about it using the #ArtsSection hashtag.
Special thanks to Arts Guide Editors Melanie Emerson and Alessia Zanin-Yost, all of the contributors, and the ACRL Arts Publications and Research Committee for their work on this great resource.
