The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation launched the Chicago K9s for Cops public art campaign on August 13th, to memorialize the important work of the City’s Canine Unit and to support families of police officers who have been killed or severely injured in the line of duty.
The magnificently designed “Parker” is sponsored by Millennium Garages in Chicago and SP+.
“It was important for us to incorporate the garages and the community into Parker’s design,” commented Kim Hyla, SP+ Marketing & Sales Manager, who worked with Vice President Jim Healy to find the right artist to paint Parker. “We chose Ken Klopack as the artist. He really painted the perfect tribute.”
Parker will be displayed until September 30th at 730 N. Michigan Avenue in Chicago.
