Chicago artist and performer Elisa Harkins, aka Pooper, was in a serious accident on April 4th of this year. A van struck her as she was bicycling from downtown. She is currently recovering in Oklahoma from her injuries and from surgery.  But with hospital and living expenses surpassing $100,000, she is need of monetary help.  Wicker Park lounge Rodan will hold a benefit for her tonight to help in alleviating her bills.  Donations will be accepted at the door and a portion of the proceeds from sales will also be donated.

You may be familiar with her street artwork from over the years featuring Yetis, Eskimo hunters, and other characters...

....or from her performances and videos...

I wish Elisa a speedy recovery!
