The one, the only, Lee Godie. A colorful and dynamic figure in Chicago's cultural scene into the early 1990s, she became one of Chicago’s most collected artists. Making the streets of downtown Chicago her studio, she lived outdoors and in transient hotels, sold her art in person, and used public lockers to store her supplies.

Expertly resourceful, Godie took her self portraits in photo booths at the Greyhound bus station. She would then embellish them by hand and sometimes attach to her canvases. Performance and creativity oozed out of every aspect of Lee Godie, grab some for yourself with this book.
