This soft, comfy shirt features artwork created in collaboration by Lakeview artists Anthony Lewellen and Chris Silva. You may recognize their work from two beloved neighborhood murals, "Lake View" by Anthony Lewellen (3241 N. Lincoln Ave) and "Flight Patterns" by Chris Silva (3411 N. Paulina St). This new collaborative design captures the vibrancy and charm of our commercial corridors, incorporating elements from both of the artist's murals.
When you purchase a Lakeview shirt for yourself or as a gift, you are supporting the Lakeview neighborhood as proceeds benefit Friends of Lakeview, a 501c3 non-profit partner to the Lakeview Chamber. Friends of Lakeview aims to improve and enhance public streets and spaces through projects such as the Lakeview Low-Line, create memorable experiences through unique programming including Dine Out on Southport and Low-Line Market, and promote the neighborhood to support local businesses.
Due to COVID-19, our mission of supporting a resilient local economy and high quality of life for businesses and residents is more important now than ever. Yet, now is also the time that we are lacking in critical funding needed to support our various areas of work. We and our neighborhood businesses greatly appreciate your purchase of this Lakeview shirt to support our organization and the Lakeview community. Together, we'll get through this and ensure that Lakeview comes out stronger.
The Lakeview shirt pre-orders will be available for pickup starting on October 8 at local retailers during their regular store hours. Purchasers will receive an email to confirm their pickup location on October 1.
