Drawing With Harold Jeffries Primary

Harold Jeffries is an artist working at the Little City Foundation art studios outside Chicago, a program for artists with developmental disabilities. He has been making his own money for years. At this event, Jeffries drew his own money and made exchanges with visitors. You’re Gonna Miss Me is a documentary about rock and roll pioneer Roky Erickson, whose band The 13th Floor Elevators coined the term “psychedelic rock” in the 1960s. This film tells the story of Erikson’s family and their struggle to care for Roky, who suffers from schizophrenia.
