Thousands of scientists hunt for the elusive 'God particle'
When Joe Incandela was growing up in the west suburbs in the 1960s and 1970s, his parents enrolled him and his three older sisters in Saturday classes at the School of the Art Institute.
"Both my husband and I were interested in art, and we thought one of them would have this great talent," said Incandela's mother, Rose, 83.
Her son, who spent Saturdays immersed in art from the time he was 7 through high school, became an outstanding glass sculptor.
