Color Cocktail Factory is the domain of three artists?MFA grads from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago?who work as professional painters, illustrators, and printmakers. These artists started Color Cocktail Factory as a way to share their knowledge with novice practitioners in a laid-back environment. But they know that for less-experienced paint slingers, the idea of coating a whole canvas can be wildly intimidating, especially if their third and fourth arms have yet to grow in. So they encourage students to drink, organizing social BYOB lessons where students work on the same guided project. At the end of the session, well-hydrated pupils take home their very own paintings, which might be a sugar-skull portrait, a landscape, or the recreation of a famous masterpiece.

Twenty of its exhibitions have toured the country, and its resumé includes The African Presence in Mexico and Frida’s Contemporaries: Women Artists of Modern Mexico. In addition to visual art, the museum’s cultural programs also display a range of other art forms including music, dance, and theater, and its annual Sor Juana Festival honors the accomplishments of Mexican women.

Push the boundaries. That's pretty much the only rule for performances at the Chicago Fringe Festival, an unconventional expo of new theatrical works from around the world. Now in its fourth year, the Windy City's festival joins in a dramatic tradition shared by cities including Indianapolis, New York, and the original outpost, Edinburgh. The week-long event provides a prominent stage for up-and-coming productions, helping little-known companies catch some buzz and established groups test out new ideas. A lottery system determines the year's lineup, a process that keeps each festival exhilaratingly unpredictable while delighting statisticians.
