Yesterday I got an email from Eveyln Brody (Professor Emeritus, Chicago-Kent). I'm sure everybody reading this knows what an important voice she has been in the world of nonprofit and tax law. But did you know that she's an amazing artist?
A year and a half ago or so, I went to see an exhibition of her pastels at the Leslie Wolf Gallery in Chicago. And now, for the next two months, she's back with a new show of seven of her large pastels entitled "Pause Play." The show will be at the NUPOC Gallery in downtown Chicago during all of March and April.
Evelyn's paintings capture apparently unremarkable moments in time--my favorite are when she paints people riding public transportation, but she also does amazing things with people in museums. And other things. Somehow, the moments she captures manage to be both perfectly ordinary and somehow transcendent.
If you're in Chicago during the next two months, I'd highly recommend checking out the second career of a tremendously talented law professor; maybe I'll see you there.
