Recently, Center on Halsted reopenedtaking down the wooden panels that surrounded the building. The boards were erected as a precaution from the recent civil unrest that took place throughout Chicago.
However, a team called Chicago Cleanup Crew turned the boards into works of art that honor the Black Lives Matter ( BLM ) movement.
Anyone interested in purchasing a board ( which start at $100 each ) should contact the Center or the Crew ( the latter through Facebook ). Proceeds will go to the Center and Brave Space Alliance, a Black-led, trans-led LGBTQ center on the South Side of Chicago.
