The Chicago Public Art Group and Logan Square Neighborhood Association headed up a group of volunteers who helped paint a mural and celebrate Chicago Foundation for Women’s 25th anniversary on August 21. The Chicago Foundation for Women grant provided a grant to bankroll the project. The mural, on the south-facing retaining wall of the planned Bloomingdale Trail, located at W. Bloomingdale Ave. and N. Albany Rd., was developed with the local community and painted by primarily female team.
You can see photos of the event and mural at the CFW Picasa photo album.
