Railroad Photography and Art Conference

Our friend Bill Stewart will be giving a presentation at the upcoming conference on railroad art and photography in Lake Forest.  He writes:

I thought I should check to see if you are all aware of the upcoming 2015 "Conversations" program of the Center for Railroad Photography & Art, to be held April 10-12 at Lake Forest College, Lake Forest, IL.  Please see the attached PDF for program details.  I'll be presenting a program on the John Barriger-Howard Fogg artistic alliance during the postwar modernization of the Monon, and there are many other compelling presentations on the agenda -- including one by noted photographer J. Parker Lamb, who roamed Illinois and Indiana railroads with camera in hand during his student days at the University of Illinois in the 1950s. 

For conference details, visit the link below.  Director Scott Lothes tells me he needs to give a final head count to the caterer by Friday, so . . . tempus fugit!

"Boogie-woogie piano music and its railroad influences". This alone might be worth the price of admission.
