Date Acquired: Unknown

Location acquired: Artist’s loft in Chicago, Illinois

Type: Painting

Personal Connection: Bob and I worked together at Utrecht Art Supply in Chicago, Illinois (along with Kevin Kurtz, another artist in my collection). He was the manager and I was one of the employees at the school supply store at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. At some point, Bob had a party at his loft on the North side of the city. Memory fails me whether I purchased this painting or whether it was a gift from him. In any case, I’ve kept this painting ever since, through many moves.
