Winthrop Garden Muralist To Be Featured On WGN On Monday (UPDATED)

The artist Mauricio Ramirez, who created the beautiful mural on the side of the refurbished Winthrop Family Historical Garden on the 4600 block of Winthrop, will be featured Monday on the WGN News at Nine, as part of its salute to Hispanic Heritage Month.

Many of you met him while helping to paint the mural. This is a chance to find out more.

WGN's blurb reads:

"Artist Mauricio Ramirez describes his artwork as crossing borders and boundaries. In May, Ramirez was commissioned for a pro-bono mural which wrapped the Bounce Children’s Foundation/ Wintrust building along the Kennedy Expressway. In Pilsen, Ramirez was partnered with a building owner for the Pilsen Warrior Mural, which depicts an Aztec warrior and generational growth. Ramirez has several other murals in Chicago, but he is also known for his national and international work. Dan Ponce reports."

UPDATE: The WGN piece is here, with several scenes of the community paint at Winthrop!
