Going Up! Another Mural (and Its Artist) Rise To The Occasion
Artist Steven Teller is the hardest-working man in Uptown!
He just finished the mural at 835-37 West Montrose, and now he's back up on his hydraulic lift, paint sprayer in hand, working hard on a new mural at 4628 North Clifton.
We asked Uptown United about it, and got the news that there will be two, possibly three, new murals on that block between now and the time cold weather sets in. Here's the skinny:
"The first is being painted at 4628 N Clifton Avenue which is owned and occupied by Cornerstone Community Outreach. This mural features the native Blue Aster flowers and an empowering woman figure amongst the floral pattern. These flowers are wildflowers that sprout up in different places throughout the Midwest but have a strong presence throughout Illinois. The mural is featured outside of Cornerstone Community Outreach which works to help the Homeless in the community with a major focus on helping women and children."
