The menu is presided over by a silhouette of the peckish pig himself, armed with fork and knife like a cannibal, and divided into sections: The Plank, The Bowl, Meat, Poultry, Seafood, Vegetarian, On Bread, Sides and Desserts. That makes it easy to troll through the menu and hit something from every food group; much of this food is made for sharing, and prices are reasonable, so don’t worry too much about over ordering. Unique menu items include: Duck Confit Mac & Cheese, served with a Sunny-Side Up Egg, Flatbread with Arugula, Serrano Ham, Goat Cheese and Red Onion with a Fig Jam Glaze, Kimchi Potato Cakes with Plum Sauce, Lamb Burger with Cumin Fries, and Beer Big Mussels cooked in beer with onions and bacon just to name a few. Desserts are all made in house by Debbie and they are definitely calorie-worthy. "

On the Brink: New Work by Nnenna Okore
EAM presents new work by internationally celebrated sculptor Nnenna Okore. Through repetitive, labor-intensive processes, Okore transforms discarded and organic materials like burlap, newspapers, plastic bags and twine into large-scale wall hangings and installations. Okore-s dramatic and undulating forms float in and across space, often casting shadows on their surrounds. Influenced by the textures, colors and landscapes of her Chicago milieu as well as the more rural environment of the small town in Nigeria where she was raised, Okore's new fiber and paper works explore the fluidity of life, finding beauty in the inevitable processes of aging and decay. Okore is a professor of art at Chicago's North Park University and was the recipient of a Fulbright Scholar Award in 2013.

Driving in Style: Promo Cars of the 1950s and 60s
The innovative and flamboyant car designs of the 1950's are now iconic. To whet consumers' appetites for the "latest thing," the Big Three American automakers (General Motors, Ford and Chrysler) began to release new models with slightly redesigned features every year. To promote the new vehicles, dealers distributed highly-detailed plastic models or "promos." Like their full-size versions, these colorful miniatures boasted streamlined tail fins and polished chrome grilles, reflections of the period's Space Age design and general prosperity. Given to potential buyers and their children, these salesman's samples are highly collectible today. Lent by Robert Reinhold and John O'Halloran, the promos in EAM's presentation will be on view in the McCormick House, also designed in the 1950s.
