LPCC and Clark Street SSA #23 Debut New Wayfinding Signage
Posted on June 18, 2019
In partnership with the Clark Street Special Service Area (SSA) #23, we’re thrilled to announce the debut of new wayfinding signage from Diversey to Armitage along Clark Street and gateway entries to the neighborhood east of Clark Street.
The new signage design is meant to welcome visitors to Lincoln Park, encourage shopping and dining along Clark Street and promote Lincoln Park’s many cultural destinations throughout the neighborhood.
“With this signage, we want to encourage pedestrians to truly explore Lincoln Park and take advantage of the great shopping and dining options along Clark Street as well as enjoy our neighborhood’s amazing cultural community,” explains Kim Schilf, President and CEO of the Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce.
Alderman Michele Smith (43rd) explains, “In addition to enjoying the incredible restaurants, park and museums along the lake, we want visitors to travel one to two blocks west to experience Clark Street.”
The new signs include the Lincoln Park logo which was inspired by Jeanne Gang’s Bentwood Pavilion, a fixture of the Lincoln Park Zoo’s Nature Boardwalk, and one of Lincoln Park’s most iconic – and photographed – structures. The piece is indicative of the intersection of community, culture and business that the LPCC strives to promote.
