> DESCRIPTION

Project Onward artists spent the summer of 2011 at Millennium Park creating portraits under a tent and roaming the gardens for artistic inspiration. Garden Party features the results of this unique season of activity, with drawings, paintings and mixed-media images depicting Chicago's world-renowned park in all its summertime glory. Gardener and activist Blake Lenoir scrupulously catalogues the species of plants and animals native to this region, including many of his friends. Theolia Norwood's dense oil pastel drawings give the Park a moody, timeless quality, while Sereno Wilson electrifies the scenery with glitter.
