Warm thanks to Jay Shefsky and Yasmine Rammohan for putting the wonderful piece together on the Avondale Mural for Chicago Tonight. It’s a story of neighbors reclaiming their community that is well worth watching. Please click here to view the video.
A big tip of my hat to the organizers, volunteers and children who had the vision and courage to make their mural happen. Gracias to Cesareo Moreno, gifted curator of the Museum of Mexican Art Chicago, dedicated organizer Anna Sobor and mural visionary Joanie Friedman for your kindness and gift to the community. Thanks to Jim O’Connell for sharing * photos of the project.
