Last Thursday evening brought one of those rare events where you feel that you have been transported to another dimension in time.
The April 30th Dinner Party was by far the most fun yet! Nora Dunn had everyone in stitches, Lane Alexander tap danced to Bach, and Paul Kahan, James Beard Nominee for Best Chef, prepared the food.
The National Restaurant Association show is a force to be reckoned with, representing a significant inflow of tourism dollars for the city of Chicago.
I attended the thirtieth anniversary celebration for the Chicago Academy for the Arts and I was awe-struck by the student performances that preceded last Thursday evening's gala.
The exhibition is truly the first of its kind or scale. Lichtenstein blurred the lines between low art and high art and paved the way for current day street artists and graphic novelists to further explore their craft in the world of fine art.
NATO?! Whatever. The big news of the weekend was the three-day conference at the University of Chicago's new Logan Arts Center, "Comics: Philosophy and Practice," where some of the greatest comics artists and graphic novelists took the stage.
