Chicago's Smart Museum opens a new show tonight titled, Heartland. Curated in conjunction with the Van Abbemuseum of the Netherlands, this show gave Europeans an introduction to work being created in middle-America by overlooked artists that touched on current events and ideas. Pieces I'm looking forward to checking out include this large-scale conspiracy drawing by Deb Sokolow

and this ziggurat photograph by Scott Hocking.

There'll also be work by Carnal Torpor, Compass Group, Cody Critcheloe, Jeremiah Day, Detroit Tree of Heaven Woodshop, Design 99, Kerry James Marshall, Greely Myatt, Marjetica Potrč, Julika Rudelius, Artur Silva, and Whoop Dee Doo.
