French Connections by David Lee Csicsko
David Lee Csicsko’s modern and playful “French Connections” collection will be on display in the lobby of Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile from August 15, 2016 through October 12, 2016. This exhibit, connecting a local Chicago artist with a French hotel, will offer a rotating selection of his twenty four portraits of iconic French personalities. Featured portraits include Coco Chanel, Le Corbusier and Josephine Baker, who left their mark on the twentieth century. Each of these limited edition prints will be hand selected by Csicsko specifically for Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile.
Inspired by Csicsko’s colorful artwork, Café des Architectes and Le Bar will be featuring a special dessert and cocktail during the exhibit. Crafted by Executive Pastry Chef Anna Young , a Mick Klug Farm Cherry Clafoutis (a classic French dessert combining fresh cherries in rich, dense custard) will be available for $10.00. Inspired by Csicsko’s Coco Chanel portrait, the special cocktail will be the Coco Chanel Martini with Ciroc Coconut Vodka, St Germain Liqueur, and coconut shavings for $14.00.
