(CBS) — The Ed Paschke Art Center opened Sunday in Jefferson Park – a tribute to the internationally acclaimed Chicago artist who died 10 years ago.
“His work is challenging. It’s inspiring. It’s beautiful. It’s real,” said Lionel Rabb.
Rabb is one of the main benefactors behind the Ed Paschke Art Center – which has a space for an artist in residence – and of course, has lots of Paschke’s art on display.
“I think he’d be blown away… He’d probably be a little shy, like, ‘Just for me? Why’d you go to the trouble?'” said Sharon Paschke, Ed’s daughter.
