Local Chicago artist, Jessica Taylor, is spearheading an art show unlike any you may have been to before. The event is called The Red Light and is an art show with works all themed around sex trafficking for the purpose of raising awareness and funds to fight against trafficking. HusART Design Collective will be hosting the show Friday, March 13th and Sunday, March 15th. Open house from 6:00-9:30pm both evenings. HusART is located at 1800 W. 21st St. #1F, Chicago IL, 60608.
This show is both gripping and inspiring by nature. With paintings, sculptures and multimedia works all designed around the harsh realities of sex trafficking, the show is sure to be one that moves hearts. The content is heavy, but so is the fact that millions of individuals are trapped in slavery still today. Jessica believes that art is a powerful communicator and is passionate about using her abilities to reflect what she believes. In this case, that the evil of trafficking is something we can, and must, all take a stand against. Both nights, the show will feature performances by other local actors and musicians at 7:00 and 8:00pm.
Jessica grew up in the Chicago suburbs and is honored to be making a debut with her artwork in a gallery near home. She recently graduated from Grace College in Indiana with degrees in Drawing & Painting and Intercultural Studies. She was recently on display at Lonnie’s Arts Gallery in Morris, IL and is a resident artist at CLA in Arlington Heights. She is planning to move to Philadelphia shortly where she will further pursue her career in the arts.
For more information contact Jessica at jtaylorartworks@gmail.com or (224) 828-0637. More images available upon request. Stop by and visit her social media sites to see other projects. @misstaylormakes - www.facebook.com/jessicataylorartworks

The LSC has one job...

Primarily that job is to handle the principal's contract. CPS isn't giving us the tools to handle that job.

Spark Energy Salespeople

Has anyone been approached by any salespeople from Spark Energy? I've had representatives from other companies knock on my door before, but they've always presented themselves as salesmen. Today two people from Spark knocked on my door and told me that "the area had just been approved for clean energy" and that "they needed to verify that I had switched to a clean provider."

Has anyone been approached by any salespeople from Spark Energy? I've had representatives from other companies knock on my door before, but they've always presented themselves as salesmen. Today two people from Spark knocked on my door and told me that "the area had just been approved for clean energy" and that "they needed to verify that I had switched to a clean provider."

I don't buy or subscribe to anything from a door to door salesperson and quickly told her I wasn't interested, to which she replied "I'm sorry it's not very interesting but it's my job to make sure that all of the residents here have switched to a clean provider, I just need you to bring me a copy of your bill." I told her again I wasn't going to be switching providers today (she rolled her eyes at me) and I closed the door.

What bothered me so much about this was that they presented themselves as some sort of official authority rather than salespeople, and spoke as if I didn't have a choice. It doesn't seem like this should be a legal tactic. Has anyone else had any problems with these salespeople, or any from another provider?

  • They came into my Apt Building, uninvited & were knocking on everyones doors like they were the Cops..I didn't open my door & they were asked to leave by another neighbor..But they did assume the role of an Authority.They have no reason to do that except intimidation.

  • I think that is how they train their people, more aggressive behavior, otherwise you wouldn't never have opened the door. I am not saying that is the good way of handling people, but you have the absolute final say if you want to change your green provider, otherwise whats the point of having the freedom to choose; If someone is doing THAT for you. Just say "No" and shut the door!!!
