This article’s title refers to Chicago art and rho instead of Row, Row, Row Your Boat. Rho is the 17th letter in the Greek alphabet. In Classical Greek, rho somewhat resembles the Roman alphabet’s P; however, the Greek rho is more rounded at the top where it joins the vertical stem. The Early Greek rho was a backward p.
Creating Chicago art with rho requires including Chicago-land animals, scenes or people. Chicago Rhock and Rholl music may now be more popular than Blues music. Chicago artists can have their rholes to play on the art scene.

The Early Greek rho (backward P) is also similar to the Phoenician Rosh letter. Rosh was the 20th letter in the Phoenician alphabet. (The Phoenician alphabet had 22 letters.)
Of course, Chicago’s artists do not need to create art using only rho. Xi, theta, delta, pi, sigma, phi, psi, gamma, lambda and omega are more exotic, Greek letters. Pi and its transcendental qualities may assist you to create Surrealistic Style art. Fraternity members or sorority members, who have Greek letters in their names, may be able to assist you. Omega watches may help you create Commercialism Style art.
