Documenting Chicago’s Street Art (and gaining recognition!)Posted: January 5, 2011
Every month, I write a column on Chicago Art Magazine documenting (and sometimes explaining) the best street art in Chicago. Very recently, I had the honor of being named #9 on Abraham Ritchie Picks Chicago’s Best of 2010 <- read it NOW! He says nice things about me!
Abraham Ritchie is the senior editor for Chicago’s Art Slant and is an all around swell guy. I had the pleasure of speaking with him at the closing reception and panel discussion for the Sixty Inches from Center: Contemporary Graffiti exhibit, and foresee working with him in the future on a project that will remain unnamed until I get my nerves, schedule and finances in order (I am the newest freelancer for Highland Park’s Patch as of yesterday, besides Wilmette’s – woot $$$).
I try to feature a new or lesser known artist each month, as well as providing basic information for budding street art fans. Check me out, if you wish…
