Pork & Politics – Stuff It! Chicago Style

Here's a promotional piece from Endangered News regarding Ray Noland's Pork & Politics art show, which will be showing one of my paintings next week. This will be the third Chicago area show I've participated in, if you count the Run Blago Run show, which unfortunately misplaced and never displayed one of my Rod Blagojevich pancake paintings. I've decided to forgo my 'Obama Emanuel Sears Tower' painting which I had been developing and instead finish a single larger portrait of Emanuel, which I think will be effective.

Pork & Politics – Stuff It! Chicago Style is a group art show that brings to life the combinatrix of two of Chicago’s favorite institutions — Politics and the Hot Dog. Apparently, inspired by the quote, “Laws are like sausages. It’s better not to see them being made,” select artists envision politicians enjoying the widely consumed cylinder of random meat products, while incorporating Chicago’s rich vienna sausage history. The politicians include the full roster of upcoming Chicago Mayoral candidates: Emanuel, Chico, Meeks, Braun, Hendon and many more. Not to be forgotten are the Chi-town favorites: Blago, Barack Obama and Richard M. Daley.
Location: 23 E. Madison St.(between Wabash & State)
*Satellite Pop-up walk-by located at: 29 W. Randolph St.

Opening Reception: Friday, December 3rd, 2010, 5PM – 10PM
Show runs from December 3rd – 31st.

Guest Artists include:
Hebru Brantley, Peter Cuba, Dan Lacey, Don’t Fret, Julia Haw, SOLO, Lashun F. Tines, TNOP and Tom Torluemke
Artist Biography:
Ray Noland aka CRO is on the pulse of contemporary pop and political culture. Noland has produced some of the most exciting and innovative art exhibitions in Chicago’s recent history; from his Go Tell Mama! – Officially Unofficial exhibitions which were the first ever Obama art inspired exhibitions in the country, to his Run, Blago, Run campaign and exhibition which documented Rod Blagojevich from indictment to hung-jury to his most recent Sweet Tea & American Values exhibition which was the kick-off exhibition at Chicago Urban Art Society. Noland also independently published the now-defunct online magazine BLACKLIST®. He has a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has worked professionally as an art director and brand designer. His art & illustrations have been published throughout the US and Europe and are in the collections of the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian. Noland currently lives and works in Chicago.
