Aron Packer Gallery is located in downtown Chicago, and has previously shown Mark's Postcard Diary works during the 2003 Homefront Invasion! tour.
A pre-show story in The Chicago Reader generated a huge crowd for opening night, and helped keep the gallery full from 7pm until 11pm.
Local artists Cynthia Plaster Caster and Michael Hernandez De Luna, and drummer Benito Herrera, Jr. (of Chicago's Heavy Mental) were among those who stopped by to visit Mark's Beautiful Mutants. Also seen in the crowd were members of Chicago's You Are Beautiful art collective.
Thanks to everyone for coming out, and to those I got to meet personally. Hope to see you again at another show in Chicago.
The show will be up until July 9th, so check it out if you are in the Chicago area.
