Many thanks to Lea, Dustin and Ingrid- and their team of young artists- for a great addition to the community. There are simply not enough projects like this. I sincerely hope that every person who was involved, supported and views this work truly respects the creativity and effort behind it.  Kudos to the project sponsors. Expectations are now set high for more great support of the arts in Rogers Park!
