Chicken Corner T-s reprise


Speaking of fonts. These Chicken Corner shirts were designed and sold circa 2002. They are artifacts of the era when Aaron Donovan's mural of chickens faced Delta Street. Chango was no more than a bright burning bit of fire in the brains of a few entrepreneurs. There were five art galleries at the base of the Del Mor Apartments. Huge crowds showed up for the collective openings once a month on Saturday night. And the Ojala gallery offered these Chicken Corner T-shirts for sale. They branded the corner, and way predated the blog. In this case we know which came first.

Recently, the shirts have been reprised -- in their original glory. They are for sale by Marsha, who is a founder of the Echo Park Historical Society as well as the Echo Park Animal Alliance, with 20 percent of proceeds benefiting the Echo Park Animal Alliance.

Non-disclaimer disclaimer: Chicken Corner the blog is not involved in the sale of Chicken Corner T-shirts in any way except sentimentally. I was not asked to "advertise" the shirts and, unfortunately, I will not get any money from their sale.
