Welcome to Not Without Your Bowler Hat

Welcome! This is Elisa Shoenberger’s blog that was started in 2014. This blog covers topics related to travel and art. I am very passionate about travel and art; I’m always thinking about where I want to go to next and what incredible art experience I will have. I write about my adventures all over the planet including Namibia, France, Ireland, China, Cambodia, New York City, and many more places. I also write about art in Chicago and beyond including a newer series talking to artists who work in the public sphere. Occasionally, I’ll talk about other things going on; I’ve been a blogger for the Chicago Northside Mini Maker Faire for over four years and also have been working to get essays and short stories published. I aim to post at least once a week.

When you have a chance, please check out my Top Ten Blog Posts that cover the gambit of this blog or Interviews with Public Artists to see the interviews with artists from all over the world including some great Chicago artists.

I’ve also started a new section to review candy and cookies, check out the Sugared Fox.

Thanks for coming out!

That’s all for now!
