An Orange Line train circling the Loop Saturday will cost you $5 to ride -- but you get to view some great art during Salvo's debut event Art on Track. According to the Positive Space blog, Art on Track is produced by Salvo, a group of young Chicago artist and designers, dedicated to the empowerment of the visual arts.
You can board the eight-car train from 6 till 10 pm at Adams and Wabash, Randolph and Wabash, Quincy and Wells, and Washington and Wells. Check it out. (Hat tip to Gapers Block.)
Red Line over the top again. Yes folks, if we want that subway slow zone fixed, we have to endure weekend subway shutdowns. And so it is this weekend, from 9 pm Friday till 7 pm Sunday. Also, a note to Red Line motormen/women -- the average tourist and occasional weekend El rider really doesn't know what "going over the top" means. So please explain a little better what exactly is going on.
Have a great holiday weekend.
