Ketubah:  Washington Square Park, Chicago (with Detroit and Chicago skylines), 2015, Judith Joseph

My latest ketubah shows Washington Square Park, the oldest existing small park in Chicago.  It was the most celebrated open air free-speech center in the country. It was also known as “Bughouse Square”, because of the nuttiness of some of the speakers. Young Studs Terkel hung out there, listening to soap-box orators, in the 20’s and 30’s.  When he died, he requested that his ashes be scattered there.
