Mural New Source of Pride to Uptown Neighborhood

August 29, 2010

Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood was just uplifted.

A new mural designed by teenagers was unveiled Saturday at Uplift Community High School, 900 W. Wilson.

The bricolage mosaic, which covers multiple exterior walls of the school, was created over six weeks this summer by After School Matters students involved in the Green Star Movement’s Uplift Bricolage Mural Program.

According to the teens, the mural represents a message of hope and excitement to the community and focuses on such themes as community, social justice, history and education.

The mural was dedicated Saturday morning with a ceremony at the school that included performances by the artists themselves as well as speeches from supporters, including 46th Ward Alderman Helen Schiller, whose picture is enshrined in the mural.
