A lot of pics from fun times in Chicago with my partner in crime as we interact with famous works.

Jun Kaneko at Millennium Park
Anish Kapoor, Cloud Gate
This is not just a reflective bean set in the city to appease our #selfie culture. I noticed the skyline reflection and turned to look behind me assured I would have noticed such a site. The shape, curve and reflective exterior of this sculpture provides the most beautiful panoramic skyline image available from the ground. Pure genius, Mr. Kapoor.
Buzz Spector! Malevich: With Eight Red Rectangles
I gave Buzz and exclamation point because he recently visited my studio and gave me an amazing critique and conversation. He is truly one of the most insightful and intuitive artists in which I’ve had the pleasure of speaking.
Jose Lerma at MCA
Jose Lerma’s work impressed me with the decision of the artist to have the work itself produce its noise. There are no hidden computers and speakers playing pre-recorded compositions. His canvases sit directly on the keys of an actual keyboard that is connected to visible amplifiers. I love it!
