Chicago and Big Shoulders

O'Malley's work evokes the iron and concrete soul of the city with colorful swathes of life along the lake. His prints are a remarkable study of the "Big Shoulders" of the Midwest, and a breathtaking window into the dreams of the architects, engineers, urban planners, and citizens that made it happen.
