Lee DeWyze Memorabilia


    

This display case was made to remember Mt. Prospect Paint's very own Lee DeWyze. This collection was formed from all the Lee DeWyze memorabilia gathered from the very beginning of his American Idol journey. It shows everything from T-shirts, hats, wristbands, buttons, and bottled water to Lee's business card. Most importantly, the case displays a guitar, paint can, and paint paddle, all of which Lee signed on the day of his hometown parade - Friday, May 14, 2010. This display will be a permanent shrine to celebrate the victory of Mt. Prospect Paint's Lee DeWyze's rise to the top.
