2019 Mural Projects

Mural by Louise “Ouizi” Jones on Chicago Avenue in Evanston

In 2019, we continued to produce several large scale projects across Evanston. This year, we extended the program to incorporate more projects with youth working alongside artists, as well as projects led by professional artists alone. Our 2019 projects included works by:

Louise “Ouizi” Jones from Detroit, who came to paint her signature native botanicals on a prominent building on Chicago Avenue in Evanstson. This mural was in partnership with the Main Dempster Mile.

Molly Zakrajsek (Molly Z), who painted a downtown Evanston Metra transit wall with 15 ETHS students, each using intricate organic original patterns and shapes.

Juan-Carlos Perez, who travelled to Chicago from Southern California to paint a collaborative mural with 60 children in after school programming for the community center Family Focus building in Evanston.
