For one special evening, the interior walls of the Flat Iron Arts Building will transform into a canvas displaying a continuous flow of linear art, turning the twisting hallways into a visual artistic journey. The mural, painted by a collaboration of select Chicago artists, will debut, be experienced, and vanish in one evening.

I will be featuring a large scale portrait of Brianna Thompson that I painted on a much smaller scale last year. Also, keep an eye out form some of my new paintings including a new portrait and 24″ x 36″ bodyscape.

This neighborhood celebration is the perfect introduction to the vibrant cultural life and art scene of the Bucktown and Wicker Park neighborhoods. For more information on this and other FIAA events, please visit www.flatironartists.org.
