CALL FOR WALLS: Help Bring New Public Art to the Community


Since 2017, the Lakeview Public Art Committee has worked to identify innovative artists and secure funding to support the display of public works of art in highly-visible locations. For every new mural we bring to the community, there are countless hours spent reaching out to property owners getting permission to install a mural on their building walls. Over 16 murals and exhibits have been installed to date, and now, we need your help.

The Lakeview Public Art Committee is calling on all landlords, tenants, neighborhood groups and business owners to submit ideas for highly-visible walls to host new pieces of public art in 2022 and beyond. If you own a building or know someone who owns a building in Lakeview or Roscoe Village that would like to feature a new mural, please get in touch with Nicole McLellan at Nicole@lrvcc.org or call 773 472 7171 x102 to provide more details and discuss feasibility of a new piece of public art. 
For more information on the Lakeview Public Art Committee and public art in our communities, visit www.lakeviewroscoevillage.org/public-art-program or contact Nicole@lrvcc.org with any questions.

The 2022 Housing Market is on Fire

At this 11-unit condominium building under construction on Southport Avenue in Lakeview, so many people showed up for an early-January open house that the listing agent had to make dozens of them wait in the garage as others toured the units.
