Dorothy Perry: Wicker Park Nights Photographer

Dorothy.jpgWhen you look at Dorothy Perry's work, you see moments:  she captures something of the immediate moment, something that gives you a look into a person's consciousness.  And these moments have an edge, in
that we don’t get to them without a price...there is an investment of mind or heart or soul, or all three...
Wicker Park Nights artists are an amazing group of individuals, and all highly invested in their art: in a sense, their art creates their lives.  Dorothy will be at all four Wicker Park Nights documenting all of the artists performing or presenting their work, and her photographs will be online with a link on this page.  We are very honored to have such an extraordinary person turn her focus on us.
***Please check back later today or tomorrow morning to see some of her pictures of last night's event and of the artists.  Those of us who were at the event couldn't help but notice how busy she was, so it will exciting to  see what she was seeing.

Duet1.jpg At about 1:00 PM on Friday, the 30th, the city informed us that we had to cancel the evening, and that there was little chance that we could even do the second event on February 6., and further informed us that we had in fact never filed an application for the permits/licenses we needed:  We have been talking with them for many months about these evenings, always assuring them that we wanted to follow their requirements exactly:   and after having gradually submitted the 23 or so documents they requested, they told us they had no record of us wanting the licenses required for these evenings.   And they lectured us about how these licenses should have been gotten months in advance. 

A Kafka-esque situation to be sure but one with a reasonable explanation:  It’s their ‘buearocratic or computer system that doesn’t acknowledge that you HAVE an application unless you have ALREADY paid them and submitted all the documents:  they just neglected to tell us that.  Certainly they handle thousands of licenses like this so they likely assume that everyone knows this.
