"Ask a class of first graders if there are any artists in the room and they will all raise their hands. My hand's still up."
About the artist...
Kevin Lahvic is a contemporary American artist who has been based out of his studio/gallery in the historic Flat Iron Arts Building for the better part of two decades. Known for his warm, rich pallet, uplifting themes, and humorous takes on the human condition, his work is most often described as, “Happy.”
The Flat Iron, located in the heart of Chicago’s vibrant Wicker Park neighborhood, is a popular destination point for art lovers from around the world. The building is open to the public daily from 10am until 8pm, and while “drop-in” studio visits are most welcome, guests may also schedule an appointment simply by texting Kevin at: (708)415-6370. This is the best way to guarantee availability and a private tour of “Gallery 222.”
The Flat Iron also hosts a free, building-wide “First Friday” opening each month from 6-10pm. Visitors are invited to explore the second and third floor of this iconic structure and meet the resident artists in the intimate setting of their studios. Each opening is unique, with changing exhibits & guest artists, musical performances, and a wide variety of enriching experiences.
