Culture Vultures: Prairie Gardens, Mark Rothko, and Eiko & Koma 

In-the-know Chicagoans tell the Reader what they're watching, reading, and seeing

Joey Wozniak, painter, whose exhibit "Urban Flowers" is now showing at the Eyeporium Gallery (1431 N. Milwaukee), heads out for:

Chicago's prairie gardens In the summer I find myself on my bike a lot, more looking for inspiration than the need for exercise. My rides have taken me over to two northwest-side parks. River Park at 5100 N. Francisco and Winnemac Park at Damen and Foster. Both have prairie gardens, or areas that have been let go back to a more natural state. I see these prairies as abstract paintings ready to be found, and I love the forms of the flowers themselves.
