Quick Essay on Chicago Artist Identity

read this. do people living in other cities feel the same way? Is this just some bullshit angle, a spin on artists' identity aimed for recognition, uniqueness? Buy this art because it is not aware that it is a product Process over product is something that I identify with, and in fact, feel proud/energized to know other chicagoans perceive their actions in the same way. But it seems contradictory, in a bad way, to end this type of sentiment, found in the essay, with an encouragement to buy the very art that claims it doesn't care whether it is bought or not. But still, the artists efforts seem awesome, and this is just the way the essay's writer has spun them.
