The gut contains more neurotransmitters than the brain. Food is information, not just calories. When I was feeding my gut with crappy Sour Patch Kids and Big Gulps, I was sending a message to my brain to feel like crap, too.

Meet Mike Reed (Pitchfork) and Roelle Schmidt (Links Hall) at a new cross-disciplinary collaboration called Creative Crossings. This new series of events produced by the Chicago Artists Coalition brings together makers and doers from varied disciplines to promote connections and an understanding of the needs of practicing artists.
