Rodgers Park Mural Proposal

In summary: An open call was put out to all artists residing in the city of Chicago to apply for one of twelve stipends being awarded to paint a mural on CTA (Chicago transit Authority) and Metra ( the train that escapes you from the city) Underpasses.  All of the underpasses are in a neighborhood called Rodgers Park.  For those readers who are not familiar with Chicago, it is the furthest northeast corner of the city abutting Lake Michigan.  Having a brother currently residing in the neighborhood and a real history hanging out in various places in Rodgers Park over the years*I applied.

* I once helped stop some dick from beating his girlfriend with a lampshade in the street while taking a break from Steve Jackson’s  Car Wars cica 1989. —I also played a lot of 2Ed D&D, some Risk, some Supremacy, Illuminati , and more recently Catan, Carcassonne, Puerto Rico, and even Horseshoes in Rodgers park.

Here is part of the application. The Artists will be chosen by a community vote, so if you happen to live in Rodgers Park; please vote for me.
