Mayer shares her inspiration for the banners that will eventually replace the current "Uptown Proud" banners you see:
"The Uptown banner design has Deco-inspired, geometric hand-lettering, alongside a composition of musical instruments, and peeking through is a criss-cross brick pattern-an architectural detail found on the Aragon and Uptown Theater buildings. All of the elements reflect the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago, a designated music & entertainment district with strong roots in the prohibition era."
Our thanks to Uptown United and all of the local businesses that are sponsoring these beautifully designed additions to our streetscape!
