When my wife and I were in Boston the other week visiting our lovely niece, one of our first stops was the Museum of Fine Arts. What an amazing place! I could have spent days there and still not covered it all.
On April 23, I led my fifth beach cleanup through the Alliance for the Great Lakes' Adopt-a-Beach™ program. Thanks to 20 dedicated volunteers, we collected over 30 pounds of trash from Lee Street Beach in Evanston.
Is there any question that art is good for us? That it evokes emotion, inspires, motivates, educates and touches us in ways that nothing else can? We admire art in public spaces, we watch it on stage and the big screen, we hear it on the radio. Art, in all of its forms, is an essential part of our everyday lives.
Thank you for taking your valuable time to glance at this post. I know how inundated you are with information, so I appreciate it very much. This will be short. Please take a look on my website at the exhibits and events I have coming up in the next few months. I'd love to see you at one or more of them. Happy February!
My colleague Nelson Armour and I started a journey four years ago to create an art exhibit focused on Lake Michigan. Later this month, this project will come to fruition when “Surface Tension: Beauty and Fragility in Lake Michigan” opens at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.
