Hey, Does anybody remember ...

Ed Pachke ?

You know, one of Chicago's BEST KNOWN artists..

The artist that created many of his masterpieces on the second floor of the Adelphi Theater (right here on Clark and Estes)..

You must have heard that he was honored on the section of Monroe Street between Michigan Avenue and Columbus Drive after his death..

The famous artists, who stayed in Rogers Park instead of living anywhere else ..


What did we do after his death ..

Instead of honoring him, or even a memorial, we tear down his old studio.


That's what happens when you mix a measly $4,000 campaign contribution with an absentee alderman.
