• Final design is approved! Chicago Avenue mural


    BEGIN MID-MAY, weather permitting


    ABOUT OUR MURALIST: Louise Chen is based in Detroit, and was chosen for this commission during a Community Input Event in May of 2018.


    ABOUT THE INSPIRATION FOR OUR DESIGN: "My concept for the sketch was inspired by the color purple! I’ve incorporated two native Evanston botanicals - echinacea and western sunflower. I changed the color of the western sunflower to mimic how butterflies see flowers with UV. I also included my ubiquitous peony and some red berries (perhaps winterberries) and lavender sprigs. There will probably also be a hint of little bluestem grass in the background." -- Ouizi
