'Eight Forty-Eight' tours the Art Institute of Chicago to look at gay art and artists throughout Western art.

Sep. 12, 2011

Many grieved together at commemorations for the 10th anniversary of 9/11 across the country over the weekend. But what happens to those impacted by tragedy after attention wanes? Eight Forty-Eight talks to psychiatrist Dr. Carl Bell about the ways emotions play out in the aftermath of tragedy. And, Alene Frost comments on the role reversal she experienced with her sister after the death of her sister’s husband. Then, gay artists and subject matter are a huge part of the canon of Western art, so Eight Forty-Eight toured the Art Institute of Chicago to examine the theme. Plus, the show revisits an interview with Chuck Renslow, a gay pioneer and owner of a vast collection of artwork depicting the leather scene. And David Greising joins Eight Forty-Eight for a look at the latest in business news and what companies face going public in a volatile market. And finally, Cheryl Raye-Stout delivers  the latest on local sports--including the Chicago Bears home opener.
