A recently-completed mural on the south wall of , 1111 Chicago Ave., provided students and staff with an opportunity to creatively express their visions and reflections of the South Evanston community.
“Welcome to Evanston” reads the mural, which depicts many notable, local landmarks from a south-side vantage.
The piece was designed by ETHS art teacher Petra Maton alongside her spring semester cartooning students.
“For the plan we wanted to focus on all of the great things about Evanston, particularly from a South Evanston perspective,” said Marla Seibold, an ETHS art teacher who took part in the painting process, according to a school press release.
Seibold coordinated the project with the Young Evanston Artists (YEA!) organization and Whole Foods.
