Chicagoans: Meet Your Aldermen

This weekend I stopped by Wicker Park’s Johalla Projects to check out the 50 Alderman / 50 Artists opening. Pairing Chicago artists with Chicago Alderman, the group portrait show featured some standout pieces ranging from a Lego® brick mosaic to classic black and white photography. Receiving extensive press coverage including a writeup in the Chicago Tribune and two articles in the New York Times, the collaborative experience is definitely worth a visit. My three favorite pieces were Craig Berman‘s infographic illustration of Rey Colón, Lunchbreath‘s vector drawing of Alderman Sandi Jackson and Dubi Kaufmann‘s aforementioned Lego® piece of Alderman Ariel Reboyras. Go see it before the closing reception on April 2nd!


  1. Craig Berman piece was depicting Rey Colón not Manny Flores.
    I am glad you liked my piece.
