Lockport Keep our Businesses Afloat

Lockport, IL

Dates: Now - Sep. 1, 2021
Location: Downtown Lockport Businesses, Lockport, IL

Come visit the public art on display throughout the City of Lockport this summer! Twenty-two Chicagoland artists, handpicked by the curators at Lockport's Illinois State Museum Campus, have decorated three-foot tall, fiberglass ducks. These fun masterpieces will sit in front of the businesses and commercial plazas hit hardest by the COVID shutdowns and restrictions of the past year.

The cost of the ducks, the artists, and the accompanying advertising, came from private businesses who were able to operate with minimal disruption this past year and wanted to help their fellow entrepreneurs stay afloat. We are grateful for their big hearts and willingness to help both the businesses and the artists.

SUMMER PASSPORTS All of the ducks will be on display from May 1st through September. Printed Passports will be available that showcase our unique, small businesses throughout the city and, in the back, is a place to have your passports stamped as you visit each duck. You will receive special offers, coupons, and a miniature rubber duck from each business with a stamp as you help Keep Our Small Business Afloat!
