A Community Mosaic is Coming to Southport

From the Lakeview Roscoe Village Chamber of Commerce:

“The Lakeview Public Art Committee and Special Service Area (SSA) 27 are proud to announce the creation of a community-driven mosaic in West Lakeview this spring! Depicted above, the mosaic will be installed on the south wall of the UPS Store located at 3501 N. Southport Ave and will represent the connectivity of Lakeview throughout the four seasons. 

The primary goal of this project is to engage the community in all aspects of the mosaic. From conception to execution, we’ve looked to local residents and businesses for input, ideas and feedback. Now, we are calling on the entire community to help us bring the mosaic to life. That’s right – we are holding open workshops for the community to contribute to the mosaic tiling and installation! Led by our project partner Greenstar Movement, these workshops will provide an opportunity to learn about the art of mosaic-making and help create West Lakeview’s first mosaic. The community tiling workshops will be held during the following dates and times:Wednesday, May 11th – Friday, May 13th: 3:00 PM – 6:00 PMWednesday, May 18th – Friday, May 20th: 3:00 PM – 6:00 PMYou can join us for 5 minutes or for the full 3 hours, on just one of the scheduled days or all six days. There is NO wrong way to get involved and RSVPs are not required for small groups, so you can join us at any point during the above dates and times!

However, if you and/or your organization would like to bring a large group of 15-20 individuals to help tile the mosaic, please reach out to Nicole McLellan at nicole@lrvcc.org or 773 472 7171×102 to schedule a separate tiling workshop. 
This mosaic is fully funded by Special Service Area 27. For more information on the Lakeview Public Art Committee and public art in West Lakeview, visit www.lakeviewroscoevillage.org/public-art-program or contact Nicole McLellan at Nicole@lrvcc.org or 773 471 7171 x102 with any questions.”
