Summer seems so far away on a cold and snowy weekend in Chicago, but things at the Art Institute are hot, hot, hot thanks to the inaugural Midwinter music-meets-art festival being held through Sunday night throughout various spaces/galleries at the venerable museum.

At this co-project between the AIC and Pitchfork Music Festival, lovers of art and music are being treated to both in one convenient and comfy locale. Music makers this weekend include(d) Laurie Anderson, Deerhunter, Mary Lattimore, Tortoise, William Basinski, serpentwithfeet, Joey Purp, Slowdive and more.

Here’s a look at some of the fun from Saturday night’s festivities, courtesy of photos by Max Herman:

The Latest
After Alzolay’s latest blunder, the Cubs might have a closer problem.
Despite the horrible start, Sox veterans say the team’s mindset is about as good as it can be.
Art
Stunning and much-deserved, it’s the largest and most comprehensive exhibition ever devoted to the Chicago artist’s work.
Davidson said Saturday he expects the Hawks to begin ascending next season after this season’s meager 23-win effort. Coach Luke Richardson said Davidson told him he plans to be active in free agency this summer to help make that happen.
On Saturday, music-lovers visited local record stores for their favorites among more than 380 exclusive releases, including projects from Pearl Jam, David Bowie, the Beatles and Paramore.
