The New Alphawood Gallery
The Alphawood Foundation felt it was so important that this exhibition come to Chicago that it has undertaken an effort to transform its headquarters building, a former bank, into a temporary museum space, the Alphawood Gallery. The reworking of the space is now underway. Our contractors have filled out the foundation—studs, plywood and drywall have been going up at remarkable speed. The floors, finishes, and lights are next. It is very exciting to see the space taking shape so rapidly. Check back regularly for updates and more exhibition information.
Alphawood Foundation is proud to bring Art AIDS America to Chicago. To accommodate the largest possible audience for this important exhibition, admission to Art AIDS America at the Alphawood Gallery will be free to all. We are only constrained by the size and capacity of our building that necessarily limit the number of visitors who can enter the gallery at one time.
To ensure admission and a quality experience, you should obtain a timed admission pass, which will allow entry to the gallery during a one-hour window.
The length of your visit will be up to you. If crowd size and other circumstances permit, a limited number of walk-up admissions will also be available onsite.

Water cribs are offshore structures that collect water from close to the bottom of a lake to supply a pumping station onshore.
The name crib is derived from the function of the structure—to surround and protect the intake shaft.
Cities supplied with drinking water collected by water cribs include Chicago, Illinois; Cleveland, Ohio; Buffalo, New York; Oregon, Ohio; Toledo, Ohio;and Monroe County, Michigan.
The water cribs in Chicago are structures built to house and protect offshore water intakes used to supply the City of Chicago with drinking water from Lake Michigan. Water is collected and transported through tunnels located close to 200 feet beneath the lake, varying in shape from circular to oval, and ranging in diameter from 10 to 20 feet.
The tunnels lead from the cribs to one of two water purification plants located onshore, the Jardine Water Purification Plant (the world’s largest) and the South Water Purification Plant, where the water is then treated before being pumped to all parts of the city as well as 118 suburbs.
The city has had nine permanent cribs of which six are still standing and two are in active use.

Ukrainian Village is a Chicago neighborhood located on the near west side of Chicago. Its boundaries are Division Street to the north, Grand Avenue to the south, Western Avenue to the west, and Damen Avenue to the east.
By the 1930s, there were five Ukrainian parishes dotting Chicago’s neighborhoods, including some in the Byzantine-Slavonic style of St. Nicholas Cathedral. Built between November 1913 and January 1915, St. Nicholas is in the heart of the Ukrainian neighborhood south of Wicker Park and along Chicago Avenue, fondly referred to by locals as Ukrainian Village.
This neighborhood, northwest of the Loop, was first settled by Polish and Slovak immigrants, but with the rise of Ukrainian nationalism and the influx of political refugees during World War I, it assumed a Ukrainian cultural identity which lingers to this day.
NOT ONLY is it the hottest neighborhood in Chicago currently, Ukrainian Village has captured

Many men and women are very self-conscious about thinning hair and hair loss.

Many people wonder what it is going to cost?

However, Dr. Yates understands the important investment in your future, life, and self-confidence and offers great financing options, from interest-free financing to longer term options. You can call their office to see if you qualify for a financing option.
I have personally seen some of the results in person – and YES, it looks totally natural!
