    “BPM” #acryliconcanvas 50"x60" 2005 finally found a home 11 years later. This painting is important to me because it actually hung at the #museumofcontemporaryartchicago the same year, part of their “Artists and Their Kids” series that used to be shown on the current theater entrance wall. The painting was inspired by the timing dots that characterize the visual display of the #technics1200 pitch control. As serendipity would have it, it’s now hung above a #turntable and a #tubeamp in a beautiful home in #oakpark. Congratulations Jani and Steve on the move and thank you for your consistent support, it’s in the perfect #collection #contemporarypainting #jamesjankowiak #visualcommunication #contemporaryart #painting #artcollection #artcollector #paintingcollection @mcachicago (at Oak Park, Illinois)
