SpotOn News – Special Edition
April 3: As artists and institutions have pivoted to virtual events online, SpotOnChicago has pivoted along with them. We've reconfigured our website to showcase the full array of virtual events being locally produced and streamed online. Our website has information and links to more than 50 events, with new ones being added each day as cultural institutions ramp-up their streaming capabilities. "We have one goal," says SpotOnChicago founder Jeff Chapman, "to help artists and institutions hang on during these tough times." News media have taken note of our efforts, including ABC7 Chicago, Broadway World and Politico. .
Update as of March 24: Because of the Covid-19 outbreak, we have placed an asterick (*) next to all of our home page categories. In the absence of new events, we've decided to highlight some of the great arts institutions and businesses that make Chicago such a great place to live. Go to Suport the Arts to see these providers. We hope you will take the time to explore these institutions and perhaps, contribute to the non-profits that will suffer greatly due to this pandemic.
March 14: As you no doubt know, almost every public event scheduled for the next month has been cancelled or postponed. We will leave most of our event pages “as is” with the hope that many of these events will be rescheduled later in the year. Readers are advised to check with Every venue as to whether their event will proceed.
