This massive wood letters that spell out Bronzeville are again in place along W. North Ave. (near N. 5th St.), and the public will get a chance to decorate them during Sunday’s Bronzeville Cultural & Arts Festival (Sunday, August 4 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.), Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs said today.
The huge letters, taller than the average adult, are works of art paying homage to the rich history of artists that lived and currently reside in Bronzeville. As part of the festival Sunday, residents will have a chance to work with Bronzeville artist Vedale Hill in transforming the letters via artistic expression.
“Many residents have asked me about the letters, and I am happy to announce that they are back and ready to be decorated on Sunday,” Alderwoman Coggs said. “I invite residents and families to show off their art skills on Sunday while enjoying the fun at the Bronzeville Cultural & Arts Festival.”
