“Chris Drew Way”: & the 99%| Rosenbaum speaks
“The most important thing to say is that Chris Drew died as he lived, fighting all the way for the dispossessed and marginalized among us, for the right of artists to speak their mind and to survive; Chris devoted his life to providing the artistic means for people to discover their creativity and to participate in the transformation of society.” ~ Lew Rosenbaum, Chicago Labor and Arts Festival
