Vicki Milewski’s first installment of her art collection “Hunting with Louis Sullivan” incorporates Milewski’s art and sense of polychromy with the drawings Louis Sullivan made for his final book, A System of Architectural Ornament:  According with the Powers of Man. 


Sullivan’s philosophical writings and drawings have never been so well connected as in Milewski’s works.  Her choice of colors and materials brings Sullivan’s drawings and ideas into vivid states which elegantly present a clear joining of the power these two artists hold.  Her understanding of Sullivan and their shared influences like Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman is clearly shown in the detailed and beautiful choices she has made in unveiling a true American philosophy that has been analyzed but never seen like this.


Milewski’s 21st Century presentation of Sullivan’s early 20th Century drawings fuse into a 21st Century boundary push along vectors which follow these great thinkers into uncharted territory of  a truly 21st Century American Art which leads into a Global Art with its eventual culmination in a Universal Art.

My ancestors are watching  (Mój   przodek  są  oglądanie) is an art exhibit of Vicki Milewski’s work informed by both her Polish paternal heritage and her love of making art in Chicago.  


This installation of this exhibit focuses on her father’s upbringing and then ownership of the family’s ancestral dairy farm in central Wisconsin.  Through some magic Milewski’s father and mother fell in love at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago.    Milewski’s work honors the memory of her parents and her ancestors by integrating the farm in Wisconsin and her other home in Chicago into her artworks as a part of her dreaming while showing how Chicago encourages cultures to meet, understand one another and live together.
