Store Fronts

Covid – 19 Storefronts

In 2020 Covid-19 forced most stores and restaurants to close or provide carry-out and delivery only. Arts Alive Chicago worked with many of the restaurants to create artwork that would help raise those dark business’s profiles.

We also painted boarded-up storefronts with a touch of humor to make the neighbors smile.

Arts Alive Chicago started (as Arts Alive/45 in 2011) by painting vacant storefronts…and we still enjoy the fun.
