    2022 artist @leftyoutthere and examples of incorporation of artwork in event materialsFor the inaugural Bank of America Chicago 13.1, we were honored to have local artist, Lefty Out There (Franco Campanella), leaving his mark on our event. Lefty’s work was born on Chicago’s walls but has gained recognition by large brands across the United States, Europe and Asia.

    Lefty’s pattern resembles cell structures and organisms, and calls for the audience to pay attention to things that they take for granted, which is a natural connection to our event as we reimagine what it’s like to run in Chicago.
