EVER, Immigrants, and the Eagles Wings in Chicago

Street Artist “Ever” spread his wings in Chicago last week to radiate his kaleidoscopic vision of the immigrant multitudes across a huge expanse of wall in the Pilsen neighborhood.  Just outside the University Station Condominium, one the neighborhoods most diversely populated, this inclusionary vision of the American eagle refers directly to the experiences of the immigrant community who negotiate themselves through the obstacles and opportunities inherent in moving from one country to another. Says Nick Marzullo of Pawn Works, Ever “had a blast as he was getting quite a lot of positive attention and press while here in Chicago.”

Brett Flanigan and Cannon Dill in Chicago

Brett Flanigan and Cannon Dill just finished this huge mural in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood combining abstract black and white renderings of the animal world and bright popping abstracts wrapping forms from head to toe. On their way across the country from hometown Oakland they stopped off to see their buddies at Pawn Works for this ongoing “Art in Public Places” project, before they continue on to New York. Expect to see more from these two.

Burgerman Wins Gold at Hungry Games 2012

Opening Ceremonies for The Hungry Games Chicago 2012 are tonight as olympic doodler Jon Burgerman cuts the ribbon and hopefully does not cut the cheese at Pawn Works Gallery. In a feat that must have simply shot the insurance and security costs flying through the roof, this week the gallery allowed Jon to climb a ladder to install a wall as part of their Art in Public Places project. You can see that the proceedings were intense as the infield grass appears to have undergone heavy trampling. Heroically, our man Burgerman came in first place in this event from a field of one.
