Don't waste your first month of fall singing that "Wake Me Up When September Ends" song by Green Day! Come out to one of the fun-filled events here at Lomography Chicago. We've got a gallery showing, workshops, and a very special scavenger hunt (our third one to date)! Want to know more? Read on!
Fall is one of the most gorgeous times of the year, and we think you’re even more gorgeous. That’s why we’ve planned a bunch of awesome workshops and events this month; we want to see your pretty faces! To start off the month, we have the very lovely and ever so talented Misha Ashton-Moore gracing the store with her fantastic analog photos. Then, at the end of September, we have our third scavenger hunt planned! We’ll give you a hint, you might have to take a DAY OFF for this one!
Friday September 6th @5pm – Misha Ashton-Moore Gallery Opening (FREE)
We are overjoyed to host the work of world famous Lomographer Misha Ashton-Moore. This badass little lady travels all over the world shooting like a maniac to create one of a kind photo books. Her “Adventures in Lomography” series can be found in bookstores all over, and of course on her website. Don’t be surprised if you see her photos for sale in boutiques all over the country as well! Come check out this pro Lomographers work here at the store. And be sure to visit her booth at the Renegade Handmade Art Fair! For more info on Misha’s work visit her website! http://mishaashton.com/

Well we will teach you how! If you have your own Lomokino be sure to bring it, and if not you can borrow one from us.
Sunday September 28th – 1pm-5pm – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Scavenger Hunt! $10
BEULLER. BEULLER. BEULLER. That’s right, it’s time to have some fun on YOUR day off and maybe even win some prizes! Join us for a scavenger hunt inspired by the Chicago staple Ferris Beuller’s Day Off. You will only have a short period of time to get as many points as possible. We highly recommend you do some studying (aka watching the movie) before the hunt! There may be a few clues, only hardcore Bueller fans will know! We ask that you come ready to explore in groups of 3-5. But, if you come alone we will set you up with a group. Feel free to pre-register by stopping by, or giving us a call. And if you dress up as the cast, you will get an extra 50 points! So dust off that cheetah print vest, and feather that hair because, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around every once in a while you could miss it!”
