A few blocks from Haynes Court lies Palmisano Park, built on top of a buried limestone quarry. On the gallery walls we installed limestone Venetian plaster, a building material thousands of years old, known for its ability to expand and contract with shifting humidity. The limestone was applied by myself and my dear friend of twenty years, the Chicago-based artist Alice Tippit.
