Lakeview Low-Line Will Feature 2 Outdoor Art Exhibits Through September

The artwork from Nancy Pochis Bank and Daniel Wilson are inspired by summer festivals and how people view the world through filters.

LAKEVIEW — The Lakeview Low-Line will soon be home to two new art installations enlivening the walking path beneath the Brown Line from Southport to Lincoln avenues.

The two exhibits, running through the next 10-14 months, were made by Chicago-based artist Nancy Pochis Bank and Daniel Wilson, a multimedia artist from Cambridge in the United Kingdom.

“For the last six years, artists have been adorning their work on the Lakeview Low-Line, with Nancy and Daniel now becoming the 13th and 14th artists to install unique and eye-catching exhibits,” said Nicole McLellan, community development director of the Lakeview Roscoe Village Chamber of Commerce.

Pochis Bank’s installations take up the Ashland and Paulina Plazas, 3411 N. Ashland Ave. and 3411 N. Paulina St., with three panels of monocrhomatic images inspired by photographs she’s taken at local festivals, including Lollapalooza and Pitchfork, according to the business chamber. The installation explores themes of friendship, coming of age, beauty and regret.

Wilson’s exhibit can be found at the Southport Plaza, 3410 N. Southport Ave., and features eight pieces across four double-sided art panels, according to the chamber.

Titled “Filter,” Wilson’s installation represents how people often see the world through their own created filters, according to the chamber. Workers are installing his piece this week and it’s expected to be ready for display starting Sept. 2.

“These two new public art additions will provide a splash of color, fun design and unique patterns that celebrate our neighborhood and bring people together,” McLellan said.
