More quick shout-outs
We are in the thick of harvesting and measuring right now on our achira project, and I only have access to internet because I had to run some leaf samples to my house to set them out to dry. So no photos for this update (they're coming though, trust me).
I just wanted to send a few more shout-outs to people who have contributed to our project:
Cynthia and Bob Heywood are a veteran teacher and an accomplished photographer, respectively. They also collect underappreciated antiques, needy Victorian houses, and state-of-the-art electronics.
Dave Tichy is coordinating architect for a number of large projects, lately dealing with airports and plane repair in the Arabian peninsula. He is an encyclopedic reference on film, military history, Chicago food and culture, and any other number of topics.
Mark and Jeri Webb are important figures in Chicago's cultural scene, not only for their personal interest in naive art, but because both have a long history of working in some of the city's preeminent museums and other institutions of high culture.
As you can see, we continue to get contributions from a diverse and fascinating group of people. If you haven't donated yet, please do, and if you have, please tell a friend to. We're getting into the home stretch, which is where we need all the help we can get to arrive at our campaign goal. Thanks again for following along.
