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 Born 1951 on 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. We had our own dark room/lab at home, and I processed and printed my own film at an early age. My father also shot a good deal of Kodachrome; consequently, so did I. I started with a 120 roll film camera and still shoot roll film today with two 6x17cm cameras and a 6x12cm rotating lens camera. I also shoot digital, often side by side, and digitize all my film with an Imacon. I am currently represented by Panoramic Images of Evanston, Illinois, U. S. A.
I am also well traveled and would like to keep traveling for as long as I can.
