Chicago Looks for Newcity: Vincent and Anna

Vincent Uribe and Anna Mort of LVL3 Gallery are always in great spirits and often in matching outfits. They were photographed during their fifth annual silent auction and benefit raffle, an event they named hArts for Art, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting local nonprofit Arts of Life.

Vincent and Anna were recently featured in my Newcity street style column, read their interview here and get the latest issue all over town in places such as John Fluevog, Quimby's, Epic Burger, Whole Foods, Old Town School of Folk Music, Myopic Books, Music Box Theater and in those black newspaper boxes downtown. See distribution map here.
