I'm an arts journalist and freelance writer who's a regular contributor to the Chicago Reader. My articles and occasional reviews have also appeared in ARTnews, Public Art Review, Sculpture, New Art Examiner, Ceramics Monthly, Labor's Heritage, and Chicago magazine and the Chicago Tribune as well as a wide variety of other publications. I have a special interest in public art and community-based art, including contemporary murals.
In addition, I'm the author of Urban Art Chicago: A Guide to Community Murals, Mosaics, and Sculptures, with Olivia Gude (Ivan R. Dee, 2000); Murals: The Great Walls of Joliet (University of Illinois Press, 2001); and Chicago Parks Rediscovered, with photographs by Frank Dina (Jannes Art Press/Northwestern University Press, 2002). Occasionally, I'm writer/editor for Chicago Public Art Group Newsmagazine.
