It was to be a time to celebrate our freedoms and the birth of our great nation here in the Midwest. Instead, it was a time of terror for those surrounded by the sounds of not loud cracking fireworks but for those at the 4th of July parade the sounds of terror as gun shots reigned over the parade and Midwesterners from Iowa to Illinois ran away to save their lives and the lives of their loved ones.
An up-and-coming local Chicago Artist David Berkowitz had made plans before 4th of July to put on an art show to try and bring the community together. Now after the series of events he believes it is best for a period of time to heal and postpone the art show and exhibit that was planned.
The midwestern born artist who spent 4 years in Iowa and has had inspiration for his unicorn series from the local corn fields has over 150 solo exhibitions and 1000+ collective exhibitions in 125 countries either virtually or in person. According to the Chicago Tribune piece on David Berkowtiz his collection was once showcased at the golf course club houses and the world-renowned Highland Park Country Club.
With the postponement of art shows and events it’s ironic that on the day of freedom we are now retreating. We should be proud to live in a country that allows so many freedoms but the irony is contrasted by the tragedies that are incurred on a daily basis.
Whether it’s popular NFTs or animated designs that are created to help everyone from young kids to adults feel happy it’s important that you find art work that helps you to heal and feel better.
Distractions with art are typically a great way to perk up and express your feelings. Inspired by the great modern masters like Frida Kahlo, Piet Mondrian, Claude Monet, and Damien Hirst. It’s art and design that can make a company great and fill a room, so it has character. We look forward to getting back to normal and seeing artists like myself create pieces that inspire a mood of happiness and drowns out sorrows. Says Berkowitz when discussing the postponement of his Chicago show.
