Prof. Onli who earned a BFA and M.A.A.T. from the prestigious School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is featured in the center photo on the lower portion of this banner that was place around downtown Chicago in 2005 to promote its then, annual scholarship fundraiser.
Here Onli would create a Rhythmistic painting while collectors watched. The painting by Onli, along with paintings by other participating alumni would be purchased. All of the resulting funds would apply to a scholarship fund for deserving students.
Onli often stated this was a fantastic opportunity to share Rhythmism with mainstream collectors and art lovers who usually never experience his type of art.
