Art Institute of Chicago's All-New
"Distance School of Art"
Announces Surprise 2nd Piece
* * * * *
The Art Institute of Chicago's new "Distance School of Art" wing has accepted a second piece of art - a photograph of the school's founder, Dr. Thomas S. Dickelman. You may recall that the "Distance School of Art" is dedicated to art best viewed from a distance of 500' to 1000'.
In announcing the new display, AIC President James Rondeau offered, "It's not because Dickelman founded the school that we are displaying his image. Instead, it's because a number of our staff and board members recently watched 'Palm Sunday Worship on the Screen,' and we could not help but notice the aging Dickelman's wrinkled, saggy face. It's a perfect example of something that is best viewed from a distance."
In hearing of the honor Dickelman sort of smiled, revealing additional wrinkles confirming the selection of his image for display.

Here's a cool thing courtesy of Cindy B. The Library of Congress is collaborating with Captain Underpants author and illustrator Dav Pilkey to create weekly videos for kids (and adults!) who might want to try their hand at drawing while we’re social distancing at home. Check our their website HERE and start drawing!
For you parents, here's a comic from WBEZ just for kids that addresses corona virus. You might want to check it out if you want to communicate with your children about Covid-19. It's based on a radio story that NPR education reporter Cory Turner did. He asked some experts what kids might want to know about the new coronavirus discovered in China.
This comic was made via interviews with  Tara Powell  at the University of Illinois School of Social Work,  Joy Osofsky  at the LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans and  Krystal Lewis  at the National Institute of Mental Health. If you want to check out the comic and see if it is a fit to show your child online, check it out HERE. If you'd like to print and fold the comic to make a booklet for your child, click HERE. Thanks to the fine folks @ WBEZ!
