Art & Wall Decor by Eric J Garcia seen at The Blackstone, Autograph Collection, Chicago - The Blackstone Chronicle

The Blackstone Chronicle

Local artist Eric Garcia did "The Blackstone Chronicle" in his inimitable comic book (illustrated or graphic) style as a historical insight into Chicago's The Blackstone hotel. The piece, which can be found on the 6th floor, depicts the history and personalities behind the historic hotel, including namesake Timothy Blackstone and his demolished mansion; Al Capone; former owner Maharishi Mahesh; the Drake brothers; Lena Horne; architects Marshall and Fox; the 1920 Republican Convention; and the numerous movies filmed at the hotel, such as “The Color of Money.” Art curation by NINE dot ARTS.
