Completed in partnership with El Paseo Community Garden, Yollocalli Arts reach, Alivio Medical Center, and National Museum of Mexican Art
Lead Artist: Chris Silva
Funded by Chicago Community Trust’s Great Rivers Grant

The artist group was asked to complete a mural as wayfinding to the river and Eleanor Boat House with themes of the river and cultural identity of Pilsen. The end result was the vibrant “Rainbow bridge”.

Thank you to the Duck Inn and the South Branch Advisory Council at Eleanor Boat House for letting the artist use their facilities during the process. Also to CDOT for coordinating their construction phase with us. Next year the remaining piece will be completed as part of Yollocalli’s Art Internship program once again.
