> DESCRIPTION

Tony Fitzpatrick is not merely a Chicago artist but an institution—an accomplished poet, actor, boxer, and raconteur, among other roles. But foremost, he is a champion of Chicago and its rich history. This project is a love poem to the city and to his childhood memories, in which text and images are combined and collaged with real pieces of Chicago history to tell both a personal story and a history of the town he loves. This exhibition includes a substantial sampling from the series that was illustrated in three of his books. Organized by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs.
