Re: “The Four-Story Farm

John Edel is truly crazy. He could be out sailing around the world or sitting in a luxurious mansion overlooking the lake. But rather, this guy decides to re-invest all of his time, energy, and money into making Chicago a better, greener place. Nuts, huh? Several years ago, I was all set to move back to the South and get out of Chicago; I had become disenchanted with the myth of new green spaces becoming available for artists in the city. And then I just happened to see a listing for a green building in Bridgeport. I had to look twice at the listing, thinking it was a scam. Now almost three years later, I have a wonderful (heated!!) studio space in the Bubbly Dynamics building, complete with a community garden plot out back. I was also able to give in to my nerdy bird watching tendencies and started a little bird sanctuary out back, which is now home to a family of Indigo the heart of the manufacturing distinct in Chicago. Who would have thought it possible? Only someone truly crazy enough to have the vision and perseverance. Thanks for being a visionary, John.

You can check out my work and see pics of the building and my studio here: and here…

Or come visit us (and the birds!) in person in Bridgeport.
