Coloring Lincoln Park

Socially-conscious and LEED Platinum real estate developer Broder engages the local community in an art project. With limeSHIFT, they commissioned artists Ellen Rutt and Patrick Ethen to create community-inspired art. The result, the Lincoln Park Patchwork Mural (LPPM), is a 60-foot mural with light installation in progress at Broder’s construction site.

We're currently seeking community submissions to inspire the artist’s upcoming patterns!
