Rapport Painting in TV Series

Peach House by Emily Rapport on set of Showtime’s “The Chi”.

If you’re watching the series “The Chi,” you may have seen a familiar Ravenswood scene – the “Peach House” has made it to Season 3! The Peach House, formerly of Damen Ave opposite the Damen El Station, was purchased by the home owner around 2005. The home was later sold and demolished and the painting picked up at a Brown Elephant by one of the set designers for the show. If you watch, you will see a lot of local artists are featured on the show and artwork is placed to subtly communicate the internal drama of characters.
