Local Artists' Works Travel to Sister City for Exhibit


Byline: Mary Randle

The West Chicago Sister Cities organization and the West Chicago Cultural Arts Commission recently shipped 37 works by local artists to Taufkirchen, Germany as part of a cultural exchange. A jury of West Chicago Cultural Arts Commission members chose the works to be included. The show in Taufkirchen will begin with an artists reception March 30, and the display will continue at Taufkirchen City Hall through the end of June.

Members of West Chicago Sister Cities and some of the artists will visit Taufkirchen for two weeks beginning March 26 at the invitation of Mayor Franz Hofstetter. The cultural exchange is another of the activities aimed at building bridges between the two sister cities since beginning the partnership in 1999. West Chicago hosted an art show by Taufkirchen artist and former West Chicago Community High School exchange student Bodo Gsedl about 18 months ago.

Key ingredients: The West Chicago City Museum and a group of volunteers are putting together a historical community cookbook to coincide with the Smithsonian "Key Ingredients" exhibit that will premiere here this year on May 31.

The group is reaching out to community members for recipes that have a strong connection to West Chicago. They are looking for recipes in two general categories: ones with a historical story or photo, or recipes using locally produced foods, such as those from Campbell's Mushroom Farm, General Mills or Jel Sert Company.
