Author Wayne Hanson: "You're Retiring to Ecuador? Are You Loco?"

Author Wayne Hanson: "You're Retiring to Ecuador? Are You Loco?"

Sunday, October 2, 2016 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Former Oak Park resident and medical researcher Wayne Hanson and his wife Estee retired to Ecuador -- and what a story he has to tell! When the Hansons decided to retire and move from north Oak Park to Ecuador, their friends reacted with a mixture of amused disbelief, folded in with incredulity and a touch of anger by some. "Are you out of your minds" was a frequently voiced sentiment.

According to Wayne, the couple moved to Ecuador for climate and adventure -- and to escape Oak Park's high taxes.

Artist Nick Bridge: "Guatemalan Sojourn"

Artist Nick Bridge: "Guatemalan Sojourn"

Sunday, June 5, 2016 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Meet Oak Park artist Nick Bridge and see his exhibit, Guatemalan Sojourn. The exhibit will continue in the Oak Park Public Library Art Gallery through Wednesday, June 29.

A common concern throughout Nick Bridge's work has been light, regardless of media or genre. "My desire to paint has manifested itself in exploration of the textures and juxtapositions of the urban landscape, remnants of our native prairie, the imagery of popular culture, still life and the human figure," notes Bridge.
