Gateway Mural on Irving Park at Kenneth by Jill Arena

This Gateway Mural is designed by Jill Arena to highlight the businesses and attractions in the Six Corners area.  OIPA and Six Corners Association pooled their resources to fund the mural and students in C. Deaton’s class at UIC came to help out for community involvement credit. Painted by Cyd Smillie, the bad weather came too early to finish in 2014. Plans are to start with this mural in 2015 and to do the south side of Irving Park also.
