Saturday AM -I’ll be walking around Art Prize for a couple hours both Saturday and Sunday. I’ll be with my 92-year old mother, who today rode the carousel at the Public Museum – she insisted on riding a horse up and down and not just sit on the bench! She wants to stop in and see Jack Nixon who is at 210 Fulton St. (south side of the street – an old fine arts shop that he’s renting for the 3 weeks of Art Prize). He has some amazing pencil drawings of Chicago (one going for 200K – this is top of the line art). Jack lives two streets down from where our family lived in Wilmette, Illinois. You really should make a point of stopping in to take a brief look at his work. It’s excellent. Tell him the weatherman told you to stop by. Well, any comments on the top ten? Who are you going to pick? Who should have been in the top ten? The weather looks much better for the rest of Art Prize…cool for Saturday and a cool start to Sunday, but lots of sunshine and warmer temperatures for much of next week. Have a great weekend!
