First snow can't stop the art

Bonnie Peterson invites us all to her house in Michigan for a weekend of wine-tasting and cross-country skiing. We wish.  This view from her (to-die-for) studio is toward a ski trail in a forest just a quarter-mile from Michigan Tech and the city of Houghton.

The exhibit continues through February 13.



This exhibit is part of a year-long project, Studio Chicago.  Interviews and upcoming exhibits at the MCA are covered at the website:  http://www.studiochicago.org/, well worth book-marking.
