The community mini-mural project was launched in 2010 to promote creative expression and provide an enriching visual experience for residents and visitors alike. Murals already have been painted on the railroad embankments along North and South boulevards at Oak Park Avenue near the Green Line station, as well as both east and west of Marion Street. Murals also have been installed on South Boulevard east of Taylor Street and west of Lombard Avenue.

Artists selected for these latest rounds of murals will continue to fill in the spaces along the viaduct in support in what officials call a long-range goal to intersperse colorful public art where possible along the entire length of the railroad from Harlem Avenue to Austin Boulevard.
