We are thrilled to welcome Leonid Osseny back to EPL this month for a brand-new Local Art @ EPL exhibit. After making his library debut in 2011, the local architect and designer has returned with a vivid collection of illustrations used in Richard Reeder’s new book Chicago Sketches. Depicting such diverse Chicago landmarks and personalities as Maxwell Street, Riverview, Nelson Algren, and the Big Klu, Osseny’s stunning graphic works help bring Reeder’s personal vignettes to life. You can view more of Mr. Osseny’s artwork by visiting the website for his Lincoln Terrace Art Studio and Gallery and also meet the artist himself when he joins Mr. Reeder for an art reception and author reading on Tuesday, February 12 at 7 pm in the Community Meeting Room of EPL’s Main Library.
Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
