Antioch’s Eco Fair Settles Into Its New Home

Area residents visit the Sixth Annual Eco Fair at the Antioch Township offices on Saturday, April 29.

Kenosha dentist David Crewe and freelance designer and part-time bumble bee Michelle Stavish discuss their collaborative artwork, a hand decorated vintage window at the Sixth Annual Eco Fair. The window has an interesting provenance. It is said to have been a part of one of the buildings on the grounds of the 1892-93 Columbian Exposition held in Chicago. The artistic efforts of the Stavish and Crewe crew paid off, as the pair were awarded first place in the competition.
