The Mass Underpass Murals Project is now underway! Alderman Joe Moore and the 49th Ward Participatory Budgeting Process invite Chicago-based artists to submit their designs to paint one of twelve CTA and Metra underpasses in Rogers Park. Final selection will be determined by a community vote. If you are interested, or know anyone who is interested in submitting a design for a mural, you can download the application by clicking on the link below.
Artists must either live in Chicago or have a studio based in Chicago. All designs must be received by Friday July 16, 2010 at 5:00 PM. They can be e-mailed to RPMassUnderpass@gmail.com or dropped off/mailed to:
49th Ward Service Office
attn: Mass Underpass Project
7356 N. Greenview Ave, Chicago, IL 60626
We look forward to seeing what the great artists of Chicago come up with, and check back here in July for preview of the designs that will be on the ballot!
