60 interviews. Sixty interviews. The big sixty. Wow. I feel so lucky and humbled by every single one of those interviews. So many amazing women making incredible artwork here in Chicago.
This 60th interview was with Melissa Leandro who works in painting, drawing, and textiles. I learned about her work at the recent Chicago Cultural Center show Present Standard curated by Edra Soto and Josue Pellot. It was an incredible show. I"m sorry it closed last week!
The big question: am I done? Well, no. I have a few more interviews that I want to do but I'm very close. June 30th is the cutoff. So there's that.
Anyway, I just wanted to leave a short note. I'm doing a lot for the Chicago Northside Mini Maker Faire right now. You can check out the website where I've done a bunch of interviews with makers: https://makerfairechicagonorthside.com/
That's all for now!
