Agenda: Mon 7/18/22 – Chicago Reader

One of the area’s most underrated art treasures is the Lubeznik Center for the Arts (101 W. Second, Michigan City, Indiana), which is free and open to the public six days a week (closed Tuesdays). On view now is “moniquemeloche presents,” an exhibition of artists represented by Monique Meloche Gallery in West Town, focusing on emerging talent from the international modern art world. The exhibition functions as a survey of the current art scene with an emphasis on the social practice approach championed by Chicagoans like Theaster Gates. It includes works by Sanford Biggers, Rashid Johnson, Layo Bright, Dan Gunn, Sheree Hovsepian, and more, and runs through October 21. Visit the Lubeznik website to plan your visit. Office hours today are from 10 am to 5 pm (MC)

Monday Night Food Ball tonight promises a visit from local royalty, as chef Mike “Ramen Lord” Satinover brings his ramen magic to the Kedzie Inn (4100 N. Kedzie) with the return of his pop-up Akahoshi Ramen. Unfortunately, pre-orders are sold out as of this writing, but a limited number of bowls will be available after 5 p.m. Reader Senior writer Mike Sula has more on Satinover’s specialty noodles here.
