Using stencils, bright colors, and multiple layers, I produced this piece to represent some of the well-known bars of the time. The colors used symbolize the various facets of Chicago\'s nightlife. The word \'Chicago\' is painted in gold because it is a first-rate city. The background is painted in various shades of blue, representing Chicago\'s history as blue\'s music center and Chicago\'s \"cool\" scene. The bars are all painted in the warm color palate due to the fact that Chicago bars are \"hot.\" The bars painted also wrap around the sides of the canvas.
