On Tuesday, June 21, the first day of summer, our Chicago River East location debuted “Chicago Looks Good On You” – a set of large-scale portraits of people “wearing” Chicago icons.
“We want to give back to the community with a public art installation that welcomes Chicagoans and visitors as the city reopens,” said Dale Schwartz, the founder and CEO of Pinstripes. “Portraying Chicago’s indomitable icons in an imaginative, fun way represents the city standing strong while at the same time evolving anew.”
Three of the 12 ft. x 16 ft. portraits in the “Chicago Looks Good On You” collection are largescale reproductions of oil paintings by Chicago-area contemporary artist Paul Brourman. The portraits portray fictional people “wearing” Chicago icons: the Buckingham Fountain, the Centennial Wheel at Navy Pier and Cloud Gate (the Bean).
“The Chicago Looks Good On You collection invites Chicagoans and visitors to return and immerse themselves in the city’s iconic landmarks and experiences, have fun again, and wear the city of Chicago proudly,” said artist Paul Brourman.
A limited-production run of shirts incorporating the art are for sale at our River East location for $25 with a portion of proceeds going to the Chicago Artist Coalition – a non-profit organization that supports Chicago artists and curators. Make sure to pick one up when you stop by to check out the installation.
