Mural on Morgan Making Progress


Roosevelt Collection neighbor and University Commons resident Nancy Plax is seeing her vision come to life at the Mural on Morgan.  Thanks to Nancy and many generous supporters in the area, what started as an ugly wall is transforming into a way to educate residents on the neighborhood’s rich history.

The wall art located on South Morgan between 15th Street and the railroad viaduct was approved by Alderman Danny Solis as part of the Art in Public Places initiative, and funded by the community. The inpiration for the art is from historical photos of the Maxwell Street Market, the vibrant railroad industry and the South Water Produce Market, all major elements of the the area’s history.  To work toward completion of the public funding, Chalkfest will be hosted this Sunday, 9/22, to raise money for the completion of the mural.  Details are below and can also found on the Mural on Morgan Facebook page.
