Sculptor Jerzy S. Kenar has operated the Wooden Gallery as his studio for the past 30 years, and EVA members can view a retrospective of his work there. The 62-year-old Polish-born artist produced the familiar mound sculpture facing Division Street at the Andersen-LaSalle II school campus, 1148 W. Honore.
Monumental Kenar installations in Chicago include wooden sculptures in international-arrivals Terminal 5 of O'Hare Airport and the Harold Washington Library Center, 400 S. State St., and the granite Black History fountain at Renaissance Park, 1300 W. 79th St. Kenar also creates church sculptures and furniture, including the Millennium Doors at Holy Trinity Church, 1118 N. Noble St.
