Chapman Kelley – wildflower artist


Artist Chapman Kelley creates wildflower spaces within city boundaries.  He recently attracted much press attention for successfully suing Chicago City authorities for deformation of artwork.  They had ripped up a  wildflower space  he’d created to make way for manicured parkland.

    Much thanks for posting information about artists’ rights. Chapman Kelley mentioned to us that it’s wonderful that people have made comments on your site, including young children. It’s amazing how a public artwork such as his Chicago Wildflower Works has captured the attention of a wide spectrum of individuals such as young children and federal appeal court justices.

    but most likely the string-pullers over at FOX wouldn’t go for that anyway…it would have to be a set-up by someone willing to put their job on the line, and somehow get some inside tech help to overcome any 7-second ‘live-feed’ delay…so that it actually gets out…you know, like on‘Ocean’s Eleven’!….—————————————————–(as 86 would say…”AHA! it’s the old ‘play-the-staged-video-while-televising-the-real-thing-live’ trick…why, Chief…that’s the oldest trick in the book!”)

    Olá, Porfírio: É agora que esse presidente transumante será cuspido da boleia? Pelos seus números, sim. Mas não me apoquento com o resultado do chuto. Esse é um dos traseiros que, quando viram de cangalhas, caem sempre sobre almofadas: mesmo se esfiapadas, puídas ou rotas.Que sorte (para mim) não ter que contar todos os poros do nariz dele. A técnica, essa coisa impositiva dos dias de hoje, pode, afinal, ser minha amiga:-)DriDri
