We leave for Chicago tomorrow. Our annual trip to Mayo for Dea's transplant annual checkup is next week. We'll be starting in Chicago, driving up through Wisconsin, over to Minnesota for her appointments, down through Iowa to see my family, then back to Chicago to see Dea's family. This annual trip has turned into a pilgrimage of sorts -a trip that we look forward to annually, now that we have confidence that Dea's checkups are ones of a celebration or sorts, instead of bad news.
I look forward to this trip for so many reasons that deal with health, family, and perspective, but I also get really wound up about seeing good shows while I'm out. Here's what's on my list:
Viktoria Sorochinski @ Catherine Edelman
Limits of Photography @ MocP (image John Brill)
Jochen Lempert @ Rochester Art Center
Light Years @ the Art Institute (image John Baldessari)
I love Alaska, there is no place I would rather live. But, damn I'm looking forward to getting out of here and driving around the heartland. Home.
If you're in the city and out seeing shows on Friday the 24th, email me if you want to meet up.
Later AK, here we come IL/WI/MN/IL.
