A Simple Way to Create a Welcoming Space with ArT

As working people began returning to the Loop, we saw an opportunity to welcome them with something eye-catching. We’re greeting them with a fresh dose of vibrant color.

It took a little imagination to see it, but we found just the spot to create a genuinely inviting scene. Slow down as you walk by the retail space on Franklin and Monroe to take in an artist’s vision on full display.

Come Visit: Tuesday- Thursday 11:00 AM- 1:00 PM.
