Mile of Murals The Mile of Murals is a community public art project that is creating a mile of murals along the concrete embankment of CTA Red Line tracks within the Glenwood Avenue Arts District from Pratt to Touhy on both sides of the tracks. This summer we are continuing the project with a new installment on the east side of Glenwood Avenue from Morse to Lunt. Local artists Lea Pinsky and Dustin Harris coordinated this wall; they led last year’s block-long mural from Lunt to Greenleaf. For this project RPBA and Clark/Morse/Glenwood SSA #24 recruited, coordinated and oversaw a small group of professional artists that worked together as a cooperative: Diana Berek, Chiara Padgett and Juan Carlos Perez. This year’s theme for the project is “Patriotism in Everyday Life”.
Street Sculptures 12 sculptures were created by local resident, artist and business owner Andy DeLaRosa (B1E Gallery) and other artists working at his gallery to be displayed on the street. These pieces of art, created entirely of recycled materials, are displayed on the sidewalk on Morse Avenue as a permanent exhibition.
