Who is the UC-IMC?
Luke Thompson, Volunteer for the Bike Project

 Luke The Bike Project is a non-profit, charitable organization of bicycle users whose mission is to educate and empower the community by providing a welcoming space to learn about bicycle repair, engage in maintenance practices, and promote safe operation through outreach and advocacy activities. Luke Thompson is not only a longtime Thursday night volunteer mechanic at the bike project of Urbana Champaign, but along with his wife Pieta, he's helped to establish a Thanksgiving tradition in the Chambana area.
Going into its third year Luke has coordinated the Bike Project of Urbana-Champaign's annual Chambana Cranksgiving food drive, to be held this year on Sunday, November 14, 2010 at 1 p.m.  This bike-based food drive collected 888 pounds of food last year for Eastern Illinois Food Bank, and they hope to break that record this time around.  Cranksgiving participants will visit grocery stores around C-U in a sort of non-perishable food scavenger hunt.

The HiBs Irsish Music.

HIB'SKate (Wade) Dowling grew up step-dancing and playing music in an Irish-Italian neighborhood in Chicago, where maintaining one’s heritage was a way of life. She studied Irish music with Noel Rice (Co. Offaly) and dancing with Jim McGing and Mark Howard (later Trinity). Overall, Kate has been playing Irish traditional music for 30 years. Jode started playing Irish music at a young age and never quit. Early influences on Jode's playing included lessons from Liz Carroll, John Kelly Sr., Bobby Casey, and Joe Ryan, along with the undeniable influence of his mother Betty (from Gurteen, Co. Sligo), his father Joe (from Tulamore, Co. Offaly) and his older brother Martin, also a fiddler. Jode has also spent a good deal of time in both Belfast and Cork, playing with and learning from the talented and generous musicians there.

The Elizabeth Beran
Sunroom at the UC-IMC

Elizabeth Beran is a Bloomington, Illinois native who has been painting almost her entire life. Her work is focused on mostly abstract, non-objective subjects, with the occasional dog, flower, pig, or human playfully gracing her canvas. Fish and clouds are two prominent themes that run through her body of work, as she seems subconsciously drawn to images of floating, whether by water, sky, or streams of consciousness. Her paintings, often inspired by her dreams, take viewers on an investigative trip into their own dreams and visions.
