Briefly, as it’s been rather a hectic morning at the Fortress of Solitude, I just wanted to provide a quick note to remind my readers in the Chicago area that I’ll be moderating the closing panel discussion and Q&A at the Catholic Art Guild’s Annual Conference and Gala on Sunday, November 4th. If you’re thinking of attending, or know someone who would be interested in doing so, act now. Tickets are only on sale for a few more days, and won’t be available at the door.
The day begins with an orchestral Latin Mass at the magnificent church of St. John Cantius, which is regularly voted one of the most beautiful churches in the United States. The event then moves to the equally magnificent Drake Hotel for lunch, speaker presentations, and a keynote address by Alexander Stoddart, Sculptor in Ordinary to Queen Elizabeth II. This will be followed by dinner in the magnificent Gold Coast Room at the Drake, shown below, followed by the panel discussion (I shall do my best to channel my inner Dick Cavett), and socializing.
And it goes without saying, if you spot me amidst the milling throng, please do come up and say hello!
