This weekend marks the 42nd Annual Beverly Hills / Morgan Park Home Tour. Six private homes and a historic church will be open for viewing Sunday, May 20, from 11 to 5. Tickets for the tour are $25 in advance or $30 at the door.
From 1 to 3 on Sunday you can meet artist Jack Simmerling at his Heritage Gallery, 1915 W 103rd St. Simmerling has been drawing the home tour homes for many years.
Five years ago I stopped in at the Heritage Gallery for a video chat with Simmerling. He’d opened the gallery fresh out of college 50 years prior to the time of my visit, now 55 years ago.
