    I didn’t know the back story of this group until I joined not too long ago.
    What an awesome bunch of dedicated people.
    Thank you all for your hard work over the years.
    If you won’t toot your horn… I’d like to.

    Do you have names of local artists who paint scenes from Grant Park? Any information would be appreciated.

      Not at the moment, but we are seeking artist-rendered submissions of the park for our 2022 calendar, so we hope to make those contacts ourselves.
