Connecting Vision and Voice Through Art: West Englewood Branch Teen Mural Project

This summer teens 13 to 18 can work with Chris at West Englewood Branch and other community artists to create a collaborative work of art.

This mural project was inspired by the challenge to teens to improve their neighborhood environment as part of the 2018 Teen Summer Challenge: Imagine Doing More!

Chris hopes the mural will bring a "visual voice" to the teen community as well as bring people together to celebrate all that is beautiful in West Englewood. See the Teen Mural Planning event schedule.

By the end of the summer, Chris will have documented the project through photos and videos, including community interviews, so be certain to check West Englewood's schedule of events for a mural unveiling and project celebration.

This special mini-grant project is part of Chicago Public Library's 2018 Teen Summer Challenge: Imagine Doing More!
