A really great morning! When we moved into our new YAB HQ, we wanted to bring a piece to the neighborhood. Today, we donated our first English/Spanish installation to Grover Cleveland Elementary!
Many thanks to Alderman Deb Mell & State Representative Jaime Andrade for coming out & talking to the kids with us. Thanks to Debora Ward, Principal, Robert Staszczak, Asst. Principal, and most of all Bree Liscinsky & the Committed to Cleveland Group for making it happen!
As this project has grown, and the community around the message has supported us, we've been wanting to donate installations. This will be the first of our yearly installation, where proceeds from every sticker (shirt, wood cursive, etc) will go to funding an installation each year.
A common question we get is - what do you do with all the scrap? We try to use as much as the whale as possible. Needing some spacers for an upcoming installation, scraps from a recent large piece worked nicely.
Front desk is coming together.
A fun little mural in Oak Park at Harlem & North. @enjoyillinois
Thanks to everyone who came out and collaborated on a tile today @apple 🙌
Last night’s @chicagoideas lab was really fun. This is what YAB HQ was built for, sharing & making art for the community. This piece will be donated to Grover Cleveland Elementary.
📆 are in!
Thank you, to the community surrounding this message. Every sticker you put out in the world, potentially changed someone’s day (or life) unexpectedly. Who knows how many hearts have been healed & smiles created by a little sticker you might have handed out, or slapped up.
Getting to five million stickers is an incredible milestone, and you deserve all the credit. It simply couldn’t have happened without you. One sticker at a time, you are changing the world we share together. 🙏
@chicagoideas was super fun! Also a sneak peek of our new space 🙌
A year ago, I was able to help welcome the new @Apple flagship to the river. Being the anniversary, they invited me back to chat. Swing by this Sunday at 1pm, 401 N Michigan & say 👋
Excited for @chicagoideas this week! We’re hosting 2 sold out labs in our almost finished building. Tomorrow can change if we make today.
