EXPO CHICAGO President/Director Tony Karman issued an open letter stating that ninth edition of the annual art event is still slated to run Sept. 24-27, but added ( in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic ) that "safety for all who will be participating remains our utmost priority."
However, Karman also stated that EXPO CHICAGO's dates are fluid: "If after several months it is determined that large events still should not take place, we will set new dates."
The letter also addressed various sectors connected with the event, such as partners, visitors and patrons, and artists.
