I Am Chicago - Rogers Park/Edgewater edition.

I Am Chicago - Rogers Park/Edgewater edition. We set up a portable, natural-light studio on Chicago’s neighborhood corners. We spend a day there documenting the characters of the city by inviting all who pass by to step into our studio. We take full-body portraits of them to record the exact way they have presented themselves to the streets on that given day, brown paper bags and all. Some strut, some smile, some grill, some glare, some frown... To encourage participation we offer everybody a professional 8x11.5 inch print of their studio portrait, made on the spot. Our goal is to set up our studio on 30 of Chicago’s corners. The purpose of ‘I am Chicago’ is to collect material for an exhibit, a book of photographs, and a film. Go to "I Am Chicago" Website>>

Rogers Park Artists Think “BIG"lass

Rogers Park Artists Think “BIG Rogers Park resident and stained glass artist Emily Carlson has always dreamed big. Some people might think of stained glass as the stuff that makes churches pretty; Carlson sees it as not only a beautiful window-filler, but a medium that reaches up and out and maybe, just maybe, something you can walk on.

Goldilocks was on to something…

Okay, maybe serving time/ temperature is not the sexiest topic, but hang in here with me, dear neighbors, because boy can it make a difference in your wine tasting experience. I was in the mood for a wine comparison the other night so David and I opened a Rioja and a Chianti Classico. Perhaps because we were getting a bit hungry for dinner, we began our note taking shortly after I opened the bottles. Now I know that ideally, wine should be given the chance to breathe, but like other habits you know are good for you, ( flossing, anyone?) I don’t do it every time. Read the rest here...
