Featuring an eclectic variety of sculptures created by Chicago artists, the goal of this garden was to incorporate each sculptor’s unique style with our own in one, cohesive space. Embrace your surroundings and consider each piece from all viewpoints—near and far, high and low. Humble landscaping, serene sculptures and a plethora of roses tie the scene together, creating an environment for art and nature lovers to rejoice in. This landscape creation serves as a reminder to always follow your own style. Don’t be afraid to stray away from the “norm”—with a little bit of thought and luck you can create something powerful and new.
The Chicago Sculpture Exhibit is an Illinois 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. CSE is funded by charitable contributions from the private sector. The CSE mission is to bring art to the neighborhoods. The hope is that you will encounter art while going about your daily life; walking to the dry cleaners or the farmer’s market, out for a run/walk, or visiting a local restaurant. The first show was mounted in 2002 with eight sculptures that were on display from May through October. The show continued to grow every year and has earned accolades from many. In 2008, the show nearly doubled when Alderman Tom Tunney brought the Lakeview neighborhood into the show. This year’s artists are Terrence Karpowicz, Janet Austin, Nicki Lemieux, Mike Helbing, and John Bannon.
We’re active members of the communities we serve. That’s why at Stantec, we always design with community in mind. Our work—engineering, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, surveying, environmental sciences, project management, and project economics, from initial project concept and planning through design, construction, and commissioning—begins at the intersection of community, creativity, and client relationships. With a long-term commitment to the people and places we serve, Stantec has the unique ability to connect to projects on a personal level and advance the quality of life in communities across the globe.
For over 75 years we have offered a unique broad selection of popular & unusual roses – Whether it be new Hybrid Teas & Grandifloras, Floribundas, Climbers, Shrubs & Shrublets, Miniatures, Tree Roses and AARS (All-America Rose Selections) award winners. For each rose variety, we select the propagation method that ensures maximum plant performance, hardiness and floriferousness in your garden. We produce both budded and own-root plants. Our state-of-the art processing, refrigeration and distribution center is located at our growing grounds in Wasco, California, in the middle of the San Joaquin Valley. Weeks has over 1,200 acres of production facilities in the same area as many of the other major rose producers. Wasco has a good deep loamy soil, plentiful clean well water and a natural climate that fits commercial rose production particularly well. In Wasco we can produce strong healthy bushes that ship easily and adapt well to most any climate in the United States.
Beginning in early December and ending about mid-February, Weeks Roses ships over four million bareroot roses throughout the United States. Immediately following harvest, our roses are carefully graded and packed in strong boxes, then shipped in temperature-controlled trucks, where applicable, either directly to our customers or to various strategically located cold storage warehouses and made available to our nursery and garden center customers when they are ready in their particular area.
