I went to Chicago with the artist Bill Newman yesterday. He was part of a panel discussion of artists with disabilities who are exhibiting at the Chicago Cultural Center. When we got to Chicago it took me thirty minutes to figure out how to make his cart work. The flightline people took it apart and put it back together wrong. We finally made it and had a pretty good time. Bill almost flipped his cart pulling "Shriners" down Wabash St. The art was amazing. The artists were all down-to-earth and witty. Even though we were only in town for a few hours, I was lucky enough to see one of my dearest friends from high school at the lecture.
