The Ed Paschke Art Center (EPAC), in collaboration with the Luminarts Cultural Foundation at the Union League Club of Chicago, recently announced the launch of an artist residency program, commencing with Erin M. Chlaghmo and John Metido, this year’s participants. Beginning in March and continuing through April 26, 2015, both artists will have access to studio space at the center, where they will produce and exhibit work in an open studio that invites visitors to observe their entire working processes, from conception to completion.
The sculpture was part of the City of Chicago’s “Cows on Parade,” which ran from June-October, 1999. It showcased over 300 different fiberglass cows embellished by some of Chicago’s top artists, including William Conger, Mr. Imagination, Carlos “Dzine” Rolón, Stanley Tigerman and Karl Wirsum.
