Healthcare Heroes Benefitted Through Artist’s Graphic Talents

Healthcare Heroes Benefitted Through Artist’s Graphic Talents

Internationally recognized and celebrated designer David Lee Csicsko has engaged in a variety of projects at almost every scale during his 30-year career. He is currently living and working in Chicago. He has worked from small privately commissioned prints to large stained glass mosaics. Hospitals, universities, elementary schools, churches, and various private homes have been part of the monumental projects.

Lee was part of artists that designed the Obama White House for Christmas in 2012. His work will be all over this weekend’s special event. The event is first-ever virtual Scottish Highland Games to benefit the oldest nonprofit in Illinois, the Chicago Scots. For the past few months, he’s been using his talents for good cause as he sold especially editioned, and hotly anticipated, history-themed t-shirts, masks, and more.

Since the spring, Lee has been working with the Chicago Scots to support staff and residents of the organization’s Caledonia Senior Living in suburban North Riverside. The COVID-19 Pandemic severely affected senior care facilities, so the efforts were a noble one.

In March in the early weeks of lockdown, while working on a design for the Chicago Scots to celebrate Tartan Day, which was coming up on April 6, Csicsko asked friend and Chicago Scots president Gus Noble, what/whom he thought Csicsko should feature in the design. Noble suggested featuring King Robert the Bruce since 2020 marked the 700th anniversary of Robert’s signing of the Declaration of Arbroath.

Lee asked about the Caledonia Senior Living conditions because of the virus. Noble responded that due to the work of Caledonia’s incredible staff, residents and staff were holding up. Noble said, “They are heroes.” Chicago Scots started raising funds for PPE and financial support for each member of the team. Lee and Noble decided to team up to expand how funds could be raised for Caledonia’s staff, they decided to call it “Heroes for Heroes.”
