Story of Mexican art in Chicago is the story of Chicago art

Where: National Museum of Mexican Art, 1852 W. 19th St.

    Story of Mexican art in Chicago is the story of Chicago art
    There's a kind of Zelig quality to the new "Arte Diseno Xicago" exhibition at the National Museum of Mexican Art. Its subtitle is "Mexican Inspiration from the World's Columbian Exposition to the Civil Rights Era," and across those 80 years this eye-opening show intersects with so many key figures in Chicago art and the culture more broadly.

Dog waste

Even with gentrification, many people leave their neatly bagged dog waste on the parkway. Why because there aren't garbage cans close to the open areas where many people walk their dogs.
Recently, we were around Chicago & Ogden admiring the architecture of a beautiful old Catholic church. The dogs were in the car. We drove around the corner and let them out for a breather when I had to go back to the car to get a bag to pick up our surprise. Then came the fun part, looking for a garbage can. Drove one stinky block to dispose. Yuk! Many people just go back to their condo, they're not carrying a bag of sh** back home

    Wendy Clinard and Akito Tsuda team up to create art out of the sights and sounds of Pilsen
    In early 2016, when Wendy Clinard first saw an article in the now-defunct magazine Chicago Voz about the Japanese photographer Akito Tsuda's photographs of Pilsen in the early 90s when he was a student at Columbia College, she felt an immediate spark of recognition.

GREAT PEOPLE, DOING GREAT THINGS In The Ward: Katie Shedivy Lowman - Kitchen Possible So this happened yesterday. I was invited to attend a new children’s cooking class at Gads Hill Center. Katie Lowman, founder of Kitchen Possible, (and an advertising exec by day), started this non-for-profit kids cooking program in order to empower kids to make amazing things happen in their lives, by teaching them to make amazing things happen in the kitchen. This passionate and vibrant 29 year-old is on to something big. The second I walked into the doors of this community center's kitchen, I was awestruck by what I saw: Almost two dozen kids, ages 9 to 12, wearing colorful aprons with matching big grins. They were working in their respective food stations, diligently dicing, mixing, stirring, grilling and tasting their delicious (& healthy) masterpieces. Each kid was proudly able to rattle off how and what they were preparing when I approached them. What made the occasion more special was that today marked this 8 week program’s “Final Dinner,” where every kid got to invite and serve their parents the meals they spent all afternoon preparing. “Kitchen Possible teaches kids so many kitchen lessons they can apply to life because they gain so much from learning the ability of working in group; being organized; embracing creativity and trying something new. The most rewarding part is seeing kids feel genuinely awesome from succeeding (in the kitchen).” Like most 501(c)(3) organizations, the success and expansion of Kitchen Possible is dependent on donations and volunteers. I hope you will consider to learn more about this program: www.KitchenPossible.org. A special thank you to the wonderful team behind Gads Hill Center for offering their space and support to a wonderful program. #25thWardSpotlight #PrideofPilsen #GreatPeopleDoingGreatThings #Healthy #Youth #Familia #Community #25thwardchicago
