Rhythm of the Community

July 11, 2024 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Join Art on Sedgwick at the Near North Library for an afternoon of arts and crafts honoring and reimagining a neighborhood mural that was whitewashed in 2015.

In 1972, artist William Walker painted murals on the façade and interior of Strangers Home Missionary Baptist Church located at Evergreen and Clybourn avenues. Once surrounded by Cabrini-Green’s “White” buildings, the church now stands on its own and has remained vacant for nearly 20 years.

Craft projects include a community recreation of the mural that will be displayed at the Near North branch!

This program is a collaboration with the Near North Library, Art on Sedgwick, and teens from their Art & Impact program with After School Matters.

Need sign language interpretation or other accessibility assistance? Please call (312) 747-8184 or email access@chipublib.org to request accommodations. Requests must be made at least 14 business days before the event.
