Bronzeville Legends Initiative (2013-ongoing)

The purpose of the Bronzeville Legends Initiative, Chicago is to transform the community with a public art installation that reaffirms its identity. This project currently consists of Mariano's Grocery Store, a 23'w x 12'h outdoor mural of singer and Bronzeville native Nat King Cole and a 20'w x 20'h painting of author Lorraine Hansberry. A 12'w x 26'h photo mural of Louis Armstrong was also created.
