April 5th, 2012 In The Pink
An Art project in Chicago, IL by Connie Noyes

As someone who has gone behind the scenes in studios with all sorts of artists, I can tell you it’s always a fascinating and rewarding experience. Connie Noyes will be opening her studio to celebrate the successful launch of the social media platform for her project IN THE PINK: the 1,000,000 people art project. Per Ms. Noyes, the IN THE PINK project draws attention and awareness to socio-cultural, historic, trans-national, economic, political, creative, generational, gender and spiritual issues based on cultural and/or personal connections to the color pink to create a global community of art and dialogue. Noyes envisions pink as a universal thread, stating, “Shades of pink are the color we share. It’s the internal color of muscles and organs unconcerned with external racial, class, gender or spiritual differences.” Noyes will be showing her own work as well as work from Chicago artists. The celebration takes place at Noyes Studio, 629 W Cermak, Studio 304 in Pilsen on Thursday, April 5, 2012 from 6 – 10 p.m.

Landscapes and Florals by Larkin Green

Thank you for coming out to support the Chicago Center for Integration and Healing and my artwork. The other artist in the show is Julie Koenig, an ovarian cancer survivor. When CCIH Director, Amy Zajakowski Uhll spoke about her vision for the Center the packed room fell silent and drew close. Love and admiration communed throughout and applause rose each time she directed the spotlight on her supporting cast. These brave therapists commit their lives to guiding trauma victims, cancer survivors and damaged souls back to a healthy life. CCIH is doing tremendous work and I am honored to have been part of their Grand Opening. A special thank you to Carol McRaith.
