Adapting to Change

As President-Elect Trump assembles his cabinet and is promising to reign in the EPA, the message put forth by Holoscenes seem more appropriate than ever.

Early Morning Opera's director and founder, Lars Jan, has taken his reflection on sea levels rising to Abu Dhabi where they are performing now through Saturday.

New Currents, Old School Flow

Thirst's John Pobojewski is highlighted for his work on O'Hare's International Terminal murals and videos for the 36th Annual Interiors Awards in Communication Arts Illustration Annual 57 as part of a feature on five Chicago designers. In the article, titled New Currents in Chicago Design, Tom Biederbeck comments that Chicago design is always transforming — "a flow that's never the same, but always reflects what's gone before." John's work is accompanied by that of Cody Hudson, Jeremiah Chiu, Renata Graw, and Jennifer Mahanay.

The feature reminded us of a very similar piece by Pat and Greg Samata in the March/April 1989 issue of Communication Arts that also highlights five Chicago designers: Jeff Barnes, Kym Abrams, Robert Petrick, Steven Liska, and Rick Valicenti.
