Pillars of the Community: The Story Behind Those Murals Under the 'L'

From Chicago’s first archbishop to NBA Hall of Famer George Mikan, iconic figures from Lincoln Park and DePaul University are immortalized on 25 murals wrapped around pillars under the Chicago Transit Authority’s Fullerton “L” stop. The public art project was conceived by muralist Brother Mark Elder, C.M., a faculty member in DePaul’s Art School, to recognize key figures and moments in the history of Lincoln Park and DePaul.

Bro. Mark will lead a walking tour of the murals at 5:30 p.m.. The reception and program will be held in Room 120AB of the Student Center beginning at 6 p.m..

This  event is hosted by the Lincoln Park Community Research Initiative and doubles as its 25th anniversary celebration.  

This event is free and open to the public as well as all members of the DePaul community.
