No, not the band. Painter Enrique Romero Santana, formerly of Madrid, Spain, has lived in Chicago since 1991, and the paintings now on display at the Chicago Cultural Center are among the achievements of his time here. A companion exhibit is on display at the Instituto Cervantes. Santanaís realistic Chicago streetscapes and gorgeous studies of light hitting Lake Michigan should not be missed. So donít miss them. (Both exhibits end in mid-January.)
