The Chicago Urban Art Society is getting pushed out of its spacious quarters at 2229 S. Halsted Street, where, as we noted, it was the pioneering tenant just 18 months ago. Immediately after the Handmade Holidays Craft Fair this Saturday, CUAS (site of the Reader‘s recent 40th anniversary bash) will relocate to 600 W. Cermak, in the riverside industrial corridor now being reinvented as the Spice Barrel District. Lauren Pacheco and Peter Kepha, the sister-brother team behind CUAS say they had to scramble to find the new digs, with only about a month’s notice.
