  • “Lost and Found” by John Henley, part of a show with Carol Jackson opening tonight at Roots & Culture

It’s the biggest weekend of the year for art openings, and in addition to gallery shows there are a slew of art-related events, including the Flat Iron Artists Association’s Beyond the Coyote, After Dark at the Art Institute, the opening of the new Busy Beaver Button Company Museum, and SAIC professor Nick Cave’s video art installation Drive-By. And, of course, the Renegade Craft Fair in Wicker Park is this Saturday and Sunday. Find complete listings here, and more images from new shows after the jump.
