I recently became acquaintances with local artist Ryan Nichole (obnoxiously large, unapologetically black) who put me on to an art show in pilsen called, "Parallel Universe" featuring pieces from two local artists, Eddie "Edo" White & Solomon Adufah. According to the Event Listing, "These two modern powerhouses will showcase a series of new creations in an intimate exhibition that will lead you into a glimpse of the future."
