Lakeview gets a new mosaic and neighbors can help lay its tiles

LAKEVIEW – A mosaic is being mounted on the side of a Lakeview building, and neighbors can help put it together.

The mosaic will be installed on the south wall of the UPS store at 3501 N. Southport Ave. The drawing shows the “L” train nearby. The project is funded by Lakeview Special Service Area 27, which has partnered with the Lakeview Public Art Committee and the Green Star Movement.

Neighbors can help lay his tiles during workshop days, which run from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. May 11-13 and May 18-20. RSVPs are not required, and anyone can join the effort, according to an announcement.

Anyone bringing a group of at least 20 volunteers should contact [email protected] to discuss scheduling.
