Description Proudly referred to as Chicago's 'front yard,' Grant Park is a public park, 319 acres located in Chicagos central business district in the Loop Community area. Grant Parks most notable features include Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum Campus. Named for United States President and Civil War General, Ulysses S. Grant, Grant Park was developed as one of Chicago's first parks and expanded through land reclamation. The park was the focus of several disputes in the late 1800s and early 1900s over open space use. It is bordered on the north by Randolph Street, on the south by Roosevelt Road, on the west by Michigan Avenue and on the east by Lake Michigan. The park contains performance venues, gardens, art work, sporting, and harbor facilities. It hosts public gatherings, and several large annual events.
Tom Jelen, Village of Lakewood Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement Native of the northwest side of Chicago, my father and his two brothers were printers for Donnelly and Sons, formerly known as The Lakeside Press. the company was known for its rotogravure, typeset, litho, and large offset printing publications, e.g., Look, Life, and National Geographic. I loved looking at the photography and trying to figure out how they did that. I would see all sorts of versions as they were printed and then the finish publication. Printing and photography were a daily diet at home, we even had our own dark room. Seventy-five percent of my file is film produced on medium format film cameras such as a Fuji 6x17, 6x9, Pentax 6x7 and a Noblex rotating lens 6x12 format. I scan all my film on an Imacon @300dpi. I proof on an Epson 7600. High rez .tiff's are available upon request.
