(CBS) — The Ed Paschke Art Center opened Sunday in Jefferson Park – a tribute to the internationally acclaimed Chicago artist who died 10 years ago.
“His work is challenging. It’s inspiring. It’s beautiful. It’s real,” said Lionel Rabb.READ MORE: Attorney: Explosion Killing 3 Near Starved Rock May Be Linked To Demo Work
Rabb is one of the main benefactors behind the Ed Paschke Art Center – which has a space for an artist in residence – and of course, has lots of Paschke’s art on display.
“I think he’d be blown away… He’d probably be a little shy, like, ‘Just for me? Why’d you go to the trouble?'” said Sharon Paschke, Ed’s daughter.
