In February 2012, Ald. Danny Solis introduced a ward-wide public art initiative designed to transform neglected, inactive spaces or sites plagued with vandalism and, to develop a restorative and preservation plan for older community murals. Additionally, this initiative looks to connect artists with creative opportunities throughout the ward.
The addition of a diverse selection of creative community experiences including 2D and 3D work as well as cultural and creative projects in green spaces or public places in the 25th Ward, this initiative will build the communities overall creation of a pedestrian-friendly, aesthetically pleasing environment for residents, business owners and visitors.
