We are saddened at the passing of Art Bryan, owner of The Redhead Piano Bar and RNBA Board Member for over 10 years.
The River North Business Association has lost a great friend. Art was a very kind and generous man who was extremely dedicated to River North and the RNBA. He vocally supported our efforts for decades and worked tirelessly on public safety issues and the legislation affecting restaurants and bars. He shunned publicity and praise, being one of the quiet ones who made a huge contribution to River North, bettering our community and association.
He will be sorely missed.
