16 Apr Spotlight: Artists of the 2021 Auction
The Lincoln Park Conservancy’s virtual Auction for Lincoln Park is fast approaching! During the weekend of June 18-20, all bets are on for our one-of-a-kind auction packages. This year, we’re focusing on what makes Chicago—and Lincoln Park in particular—such a special place. One way we are accomplishing this is by featuring the work of Chicago artists.
Here’s a sneak peek at just a few of the local artists who have generously agreed to participate in the 2021 Auction:
- Rosetta, who is known widely for creating the bronze group “Siblings” (1997) for the space in front of the Matthew Laflin Memorial Building.
- Darrell Davis, who is known for his 2005 bronze group “The Lesson,” comprised of a mother bear teaching two cubs to fish, graces the West Gate entrance of the Lincoln Park Zoo.
- Gillion Carrara, whose handblown tumblers are sure to add an artistic feel to your cocktails as her work explores the relationship between materials, design, and function.
- CopperryFields’ nature–inspired jewelry is crafted locally in Chicago and the artist is working on a special piece to be included in the auction. Other nature–themed jewelry will be featured from artists Tania Rodamilans, Powers Handcrafted, and Marie Miklaszewski.
- Steve Laske explores the beauty of the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool in his wonderful watercolor painting, a must have for any Lily Pool fanatic.
- Lasting Impressions Flowers by Lincoln Park resident Cathy Smiddy. Cathy preserves real flowers with glycerin and arranges them in high end vases. These flowers will last for several months and up to a year.
