40th Annual Pilsen Artwalk Weekend & Chicago Artists Month Kickoff Celebration

Well hello old friends! Wow, a whole season has passed since I last wrote. Time flies when you're farming. (More on that later...)

But first, I hope you'll join me & my fellow artists at the Chicago Art Department this weekend during the 40th Annual Pilsen East Artists' Open House. I'll be exhibiting selected works from some of my most recent collections and have also collaborated once again with Mike Nourse & Marta Sasinowska on their "Looking For" project that is on display in the "showPODs" windows throughout the neighborhood. I'll be around to chat about art, life, and my recent adventure into the world of urban agriculture! Details below. Be seeing you....
