The Main-Dempster Mile is pleased to announce that on the 17th day.
Mr Blount will speak with Mayor Daniel Biss and Councilor Cicely Fleming at the inauguration, and a ribbon will be cut to symbolically open the mural to trade.
“Calling attention to this mural is a very good opportunity for our district to honor Martin Luther King Day,” said Katherine Gotsick, Managing Director of Main-Dempster-Meile. “We hope the mural will remind everyone who sees it of the city’s resolution.”
The mural was commissioned by Main-Dempster Mile and installed in collaboration with the Evanston Mural Arts Program, a program of Art Encounter. The Evanston Arts Council provided a $ 1,000 grant to complete the mural. It was completed in November 2021.
