Are you wondering where the Lake Bluff sign mounted on the east wall of Be Market came from? And does it really include the names of every street in the Village? And why did the wall of the building behind the post office change in color from white to blue and green? What’s that all about? It’s the start of something fun . . . Starting June 10, new art work will be POPPING UP around town. On the walls of buildings, no less!
We’re adding Public Art – color and interesting graphics – to continue our celebration of Lake Bluff’s 125th anniversary.
Each unique piece of artwork will provide a great opportunity for selfies and fan pics — please photograph yourself, family and friends while the art is on display. A big THANKS to Ragsdale Inc. for getting things going by painting the background for a colorful, floral mural, to local artist Sandie Bacon – the creative talent behind this work of art, to community volunteers who will assist with painting flowers that will soon bloom on the building on Walnut Avenue and to Sherwin-Williams for providing paint and brushes.
Two additional art installations in the works will add fun on the wall outside Be Market/Hansa and on the library.
The committee gives a big shout out to building owners: Rob Douglass-Lake Effect LLC, the Village of Lake Bluff and Lake Bluff Library! Stay tuned for more details…brought to you by Lake Bluff’s 125th Anniversary Committee.
Volunteers will help paint the mural on Saturday June 12. All shifts are full but if you’ve questions, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
