Mural, Mural on the Wall
Happy new year!
Is everyone familiar with the new "pocket park" at the corner of Windsor and Kenilworth.
Right now, it is a big blank patch of grass. The Park District plans to add a kaboose on the park.
You will notice next door, abutting the park is a big, blank wall, which is owned by the doctors
who own the building.
Wouldn't it be great to put a mural on the blank wall? Of course it would.
We could choose amongst all the local Berwyn artists and perhaps have the community help
paint the mural onto the wall.
The only catch is that this community project would cost money. The doctors are
willing to contribute some money and are excited to go forward with the project. Yet, it can be
paid for with TIF monies, since it is part of a permanent facade.
Art for thought. Or not.
