Slated for September 6-7, 2013, The Next Wave Art Salon is an uncurated two-day art event that brings together Chicago-area artists of all different backgrounds to a found space in downtown Elgin.

Visual artists will be given space to exhibit two pieces of their work.  Performance and dance artists will have a stage to perform, and film/video will be shown in our multimedia space.  The Salon is geared to attract up-and-coming artists with innovative approaches to their art form; however it is open to Artists of all ages and genres.  This is a radically-inclusive event, meaning all work is permitted.
