With excitement about new adventures and sadness about leaving this wonderful community, our family is preparing to move to Wisconsin. In just under two weeks, we'll be putting our home on the market. It's a lovely, 4-bedroom (3 bdrm + office) on the corner of Randolph & Harvey, across from Monkey Island. The house has leaded glass, lots of woodwork, great gardens and a fenced-in yard. If you or a friend are looking to buy a home and are interested, please email soon and we'll give more details. There will be more price flexibility before we put it on the market and list with an agent.

Police seeking artists to help create community art wall

For Immediate Release: 04.30.09
Village of Oak Park

If you want your art on the side of a building, then the Oak Park Police are looking for you – but not to make an arrest. Artists of all ages and skill sets are invited to submit drawings to be part of a 40-foot by 20-foot community art wall at 411 Harrison St.

Drawings may be dropped of at the police booth for What's Booming on Harrison, Sat., May 16, or e-mailed to policeart@oak-park.us. Drawings should be no larger than 11 inches by 17 inches and electronic files must be smaller than two megabytes.

Deadline to submit drawings in person and via e-mail is 8 p.m., Sat., May 16.

Local artist Steve Fisher will coordinate all of the submissions to create a cohesive theme for the wall. Fisher and a panel of judges will choose the winning drawings. Winning entrants then will be asked to help create the wall and have their names on the dedication plaque.

Spray paint will be the primary medium for the wall, as police work to transform a building that has historically had graffiti problems into one that showcases local talent.

Call 708.3836.3800 or e-mail policeart@oak-park.us for more information.

From Andrea Green

We live at 224 S. Lombard Ave. Wednesday morning 12/17, we discovered the light bulbs were missing in the motion-detector lights over our garage door. No damage occured and nothing was missing, but it may be that some criminal activity was planned in our area.
