Stay Gorgeous – Official Blog of Salon Buzz

Stay Gorgeous featured a series of three posts in the spirit of Valentine’s Day. First, Salon Buzz owner Andreas Zafiriadis shared his three favorite Valentine’s Day-inspired hairstyles that convey a sweet, innocent look. The next post focused on the power of the color red, a symbol of love and romance. Finally, Stay Gorgeous ended the series by reflecting on the meaning of Valentine’s Day.

Urban Life, Collected – Official Blog of The Lofts at Roosevelt Collection

It’s been another exciting week for Roosevelt Collection’s social media program. Three blog posts were published to help inform residents about activities within the South Loop. One post gave information about a Near South Planning Board Network After Hours event at M Lounge, and another was dedicated to Chicago Restaurant Week launching on Friday, February 17, 2012. Our third post was a Neighborhood Guide on Franks Alterations and Tailoring giving residents more great local businesses located the South Loop (who doesn’t need a great tailor?). Next week, we’ll get an update from Dan McCaffery about new construction plans for The Lofts. Stay tuned! Finally, the Otherwise and Roosevelt Collection Management teams have been working to amp-up the brand’s Foursquare presence. Two lists were developed this week to help guide residents throughout the South Loop: South Loop Coffee Shops and Best Burgers in the South Loop.

The Seen – Official Blog of EXPO CHICAGO

The Seen also had an eventful week, with a visit to the MCA, new EXPO CHICAGO announcements and a gallery visit in Paris. One of our Chicago contributors reviewed the David Hartt show at the MCA. This incredible exhibition incorporates photography, installation and video in a documentation of the Johnson Publishing Company and the interiors of its offices since 1971.

EXPO CHICAGO announced EXPOSURE, a limited section of international contemporary galleries with visionary programming designed to be an important component of the fair. The Seen also congratulated Jeanne Gang on being named as one of Chicago Magazine’s “100 Most Powerful Chicagoans.” This impressive accomplishment recognizes Jeanne as an outstanding architect, innovative urban planner and all-around Chicago influencer.

One of our local Chicago contributors reviewed the incredible exhibition Light Years at the Art Institute of Chicago. Light Years asks a lot of its viewers; but it is certainly worth your time. Conceptual art, while often amusing, is also dense, complicated, and can produce more questions than answers.

Finally, our Paris contributor paid a visit to Galerie Karsten Greve. The first comprehensive retrospective of James Castle’s work can be seen in Karsten Greve’s stunning galley space in the Marais district.
