South Side Mural Project

Collaboration linking mural artists and community groups

The South Side Mural Project was founded in 2016 as a way to bring community members together to create vibrant, meaningful spaces on the South Side. In the summer of 2016, we began working with groups in Englewood including R.A.G.E., the Hamilton Park Advisory Council, and the Englewood Community Cultural Planning Council to get stakeholder input for the mural design. In November, we had over fifty volunteers, ages three to seventy-five, come out and paint the "Work Hard, Play Hard" mural at Hamilton Park.
