Biggest Advent Calendar!!

Wilson Abbey Windows #biggestadventcalendar is back!

Located at 935 W. Wilson Avenue in Chicago, the three-story building will unveil a new window decorated with seasonal images each day of Advent.

Beginning December 1, celestial themes with a mix of magic realism will occupy each window, culminating with the final center window on December 25. “This year there will be doves in outer space,” says building manager and co-founder of Everybody’s Coffee, Karl Sullivan. “For instance the Tuskegee Airmen represent angels.” New this year will also be a Winter Wonderland in the ground floor windows of Everybody’s Coffee.

According to Karl Sullivan: “Our objective is to show the intensity and beauty of the Advent season.”

The windows will be composed of mixed media such as sculpture, textiles, innovative lighting, as well as layered paintings. Designers and artists are Karl Sullivan, Suzanne Stewart, Genesis Winter, and artists from past years.
