I’ve been invited to speak at the next 20x2 Chicago! Thank you, Andrew Huff! Save the date for Saturday, October 22, 6-8pm, at Quenchers.
I’m back from a trip to Greece (photos on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr), just in time for Expo Art Week. But that’s not all that’s happening.
- Of course, the first day of Expo Chicago, returning for its milestone fifth year! (I’ll be at the VIP preview tonight.) In honor of the event, Throwback Thursday to one of my favorite chats with the fair’s President and Director, Tony Karman.
- Your last chance to see Luftwerk’s solarise: a sea of all colors, a site-specific series of immersive light installations at the Garfield Park Conservatory.
- The autumnal equinox and Chicagohenge (pictured above)! Twice a year, the rising and setting sun lines up perfectly with the city’s east-west street grid. The first day of fall is one of those times.
- Hobbit Day (and Tolkien Week)! Here’s another throwback: Me in Hobbiton, New Zealand, and when I quoted Gandalf in an interview.
Quite the day, September 22.
And a reminder: I’ve been invited to speak on a panel at the inaugural Startup Art Fair during Expo Chicago! So honored. The conversation’s this Sunday, 1pm, at MileNorth Hotel. Hope to see you there!
