Wicker Park Bucktown

Special Service Area #33

WPB. It’s our name and the name of the community we serve. It is where we live and what we live for. We help make this hood happen. WPB works when we grease the gears of commerce. It flourishes when we promote its arts. It stays beautiful because we keep it clean. Our culture thrives with our celebration of it. We are the forum to hear its voice. We are the volunteers who serve it. More importantly, we are it.

Hebru Brantley Returns to WPB

Posted 9/12/18

Have you walked by the intersection of Milwakee/Wood/Beach lately? World renowned artist and Chicago Native Hebru Brantley returned to our neighborhood on September 10th and 11th to paint a new mural on the east-facing wall of 1401 N. Milwaukee Ave. This piece is the second at this location by Brantley. The first piece, which stood for almost a decade and was covered by graffiti clean-up crews, was one of his earliest Chicago murals and represented a key step in the development of his iconic characters, Flyboy and Lil Mama, inspired in part by the Tuskegee Airmen. Click here to read more in Block Club
