  • I'm hoping for constructive Uptown art, sans the smarmy (look it up) self promotional angle. 😃

    I'm hoping you find whatever it is you are looking for in regards to art. Not looking up stuff, no reason, but to say...keep looking up. ☝

    As far as self-promotion this is the Alderman's newsltter...I was just mentioned because of the art on Sheridan next to Big Chicks. 🐔
