How Well Do You Know Your City Council?

As you've no doubt heard somewhere already, Reader assistant editor Lauri Apple and her friend Jeremy Scheuch recently invited their fellow artists to memorialize the Chicago City Council for a group portrait show. They've graciously permitted us to run all 50 pieces.

As part of the curators' mission was finding out how much people know about their public servants, we asked Apple to put together a little quiz. Everyone who attempted it has been made eligible for a drawing to win a Four Star commuter bike by KHS Bicycles from Roscoe Village Bikes.

The closing party for the exhibit was Friday, April 2, from 7 to 11 PM at Johalla Projects, 1561 N. Milwaukee. Your quiz must have been received by the end of Tuesday, April 6, to be eligible for the drawing.

Those thinking of cheating could find many clues reside in the Reader's online archives. Answers are now online.
