Article about The Lucerne Project

The Columbia Chronicle is the campus newspaper for Columbia College Chicago, where I teach part-time and where Patty is Associate Professor in Fiction Writing (and currently Acting Chair of the Fiction Writing Department). They interviewed me last week about The Lucerne Project, and the result was a very fine article about the show and my work that came out yesterday. I was especially grateful for the nice things said about me by the other people quoted -- thanks, Julia Borcherts and Deborah Doering.

Mary Ellen also runs a wonderful experimental art gallery in a window space in west Chicago, called Art on Armitage. I will be exhibiting a mixed media piece there during August 2012.
