140 - chicago
This last week I've been on a marathon solo road trip.  I went from South Dakota ----> Dodgeville, Wisconsin ----> DeKalb, Illinois ----> Chicago ----> Milwaukee, Wisconsin ----> LaCrosse, Wisconsin ----> South Dakota.  I had amazing timing with the gas prices spiking, but it was worth it to be able to see family, friends, and a crazy amount of art.
The goal of my adventure was to go to Art Chicago/Next with my friends Ann Flowers and Darren Houser (both excellent friends and artists to boot!).
It is held in the Merchandise Mart in Chicago - and we woke up nice and early to get there when it opened.  I think it is one of the first times in history that three artists went somewhere together and arrived on time.  Maybe we are finally grown-ups (probably not).
142 - Chicago

It was so great to get out and to see so much art.  I've really been missing a connection to the 'Art World' since moving to South Dakota, so this was a much needed 'fix'.  Through blogging and online it is easier than ever to stay somewhat connected, but there is nothing like seeing things up close.
