This week on the blog, we gave residents insights into activities within the South Loop community and launched a special resident rewards program.
The Science and Industry Museum hosted free days for the community this week. We encouraged residents to visit the newest exhibition in green living – Smart Home: Green + Wired.
In addition, we featured a special exhibition at The Art Institute of Chicago spotlighting Mr. PopArt himself, Roy Lichtenstein. An overview of the exhibition will take place on Thursday June 7th from 12 – 1 p.m. in Griffin Court. The Lichtenstein exhibit will be on display through September 3, 2012.
Printers Row Lit Fest will take place this weekend. Hoping to attract more than 130,000 attendees, we advised our residents to check out the largest Midwest literacy event.
Finally, Roosevelt Collection unveiled a special resident program this week: MI-Apartment Home Resident Club. This exclusive rewards system is brought to you by Purqz.com and is only for our residents. The free program provides huge discount opportunities at the top local and national retailers and institutions.

Following up from last week’s Taking Care of Yourself post, this week Stay Gorgeous continued with The Gorgeous Lifestyle series. The post discussed the benefits of raw juice as a part of a healthy lifestyle, where outer beauty begins with inner beauty.
This week on The Seen, we featured the Museum of Contemporary Art’s artsmart event, an evening geared toward young professionals interested in learning more about contemporary art. The evening consisted of drinks, appetizers and a private tour with Chicago Works artist Molly Zuckerman-Hartung.
Next, The Seen went behind the scenes for an inside look at the Chicago Artists’ Coalition (CAC) BOLT Residency program. CAC BOLT Residency launched a partnership and artist exchange with Power House Productions in Detroit this part March, in collaboration with ArtServe Michigan. CAC serves as a bridge between Chicago artists and the greater community and has been at the forefront of artist advocacy for over 37 years.
Finally, we published a feature on Volume Gallery, an event-based gallery that focuses on American design, particularly emerging contemporary designers. Volume Gallery presents Snarkitecture’s first solo exhibition, Funiture. On view through June 13, Funiture presents new works and site-specific installations that come together to create a landscape of childlike wonderment.
Simply Magnificent – Official blog for The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Chicago, Magnificent Mile
This week on Simply Magnificent, we published a neighborhood guide to Chicago farmers markets. Chicago farmers markets are opening up for the summer season, from the Daley Plaza Farmers Market to the Green City Market to the MCA/Streeterville Farmers Market. Local farmers markets bring fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers and a variety of other delicious foods to different neighborhoods throughout the Windy City. Chicagoans have a desire for locally grown and seasonal food, and these open-air food markets provide just that.
We also published a post featuring this weekend’s performances by the Luna Negra Dance Theater at the MCA Chicago. The company presents Luna Nueva 2012 on the MCA Stage, featuring cutting-edge contemporary dance works created by young, up-and-coming Latino choreographers. The festival includes three new works choreographed by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano, LNDT artistic director; Mónica Cervantes Rodriguez, LNDT dancer and choreographer; and guest artist Diana Szeinblum.
