Join Cook County Commissioner Bridget Gainer and me as we unveil the finished 50/50 art piece in the West Ridge Nature Preserve on October 21, 2017, at 2:00 pm!
With the help of neighbors from areas throughout the Ward, including representatives of ASNA, WANT, WEAR, BCO, GRO, NEW and the West Ridge Nature Preserve, Green Star Movement was chosen as our artist and the medium of a free-standing mosaic was selected. Over 450 neighbors helped to choose between two designs created by Green Start Movement by voting online.
And finally, neighbors will have an opportunity to contribute to the installation itself. Join the artist at the nature preserve on October 14, to help finish the piece! No need to RSVP- just come any time between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm to lend a hand!
Commissioner Gainer and I will also announce plans for a new DIVVY station across from the entrance to the nature preserve, 5800 N. Western Ave, to increase accessibility to this very special place. There will also be an announcement about another public art piece thanks to a partnership with the County.
