The journey continues 100 artist 100 collectors south of Roosevelt rd.Two-years ago an international bridge was connected between Gallery Guichard and the Yassine Art Center in Dakar Senegal in an exhibit called "Dak Art Chicago" featuring 90 works of Contemporary Senegalese painters and sculptors. Last month with the Help of the South African Consulate , MEGA (Mpumalanga Economic Growth Agency), Illinois Institute of Technology - IIT, US Cellular and  Light on the Hill for Africa we were able to connect another bridge from South Africa to Bronzeville. "Soul of The Stone" features the fine art sculptures of Robert Kaliyongo Chimungwa . Robert Chimungwa touched Chicago with his humility, and God given talent.The exhibition includes 40 original sculptures in African Jade, Verdite and Redwood. The exhibition runs through March 31, 2010. It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to Mr. Robert Kaliyongo Chimungwa.

65 years ago (76 now) I decided that the Art's, would be the essence of my life and livelihood then (1965) I took a 3 week vacation to Africa, that lasted 11 years... WHICH WAS LIKE BEING BORN AGAIN.
So believe me when tell you that this African brother's works of art (sculpture) is the best I've ever seen...
