Chicago Tribune article on
The Workers" will feature 17 oil portraits of
individuals who exemplified Chicago's work ethic by
committing themselves to showing up at a job every day
and performing a task.

Royko and Studs Terkel.
This exhibit is
& Miller, Inc - a store with character --
formerly of Glen Ellyn. It was forced out
so the Village can put up more nasty looking
condos on that location.
