Help Build The Bricolage

Put your mark on Uptown... literally! "Chicago Public Art Group artists and youth from Alternatives, Inc. are creating a bricolage (direct application mosaic) on both sides of the Foster Ave. underpass at Lake Shore Drive. This project is made possible by Alderman Mary Ann Smith. CPAG Youth from Alternatives Inc. are recruited through After School Matters summer youth employment program. The mural is a Native American inspired theme. Native American artists from the Edgewater community and Mitchell Museum of the American Indian consulted on the design and are also working on the project.

The community is invited to participate in the fabrication of the murals Monday – Thursday and Saturdays in July between the hours of noon and 4:00 PM. Anyone who would like to participate just needs to show up and check in with the lead artists Tracy VanDuinen or Todd Osborne. All neighbors are welcome."

UU note: It's going up FAST. Lots of progress in just the past three or four days. If you want to be part of the experience, we'd recommend making it sooner than later.
