El Paseo Community Garden is revitalizing their beautiful outdoor community space this summer thanks to 50×50 Neighborhood Arts Project Grant through DCASE and the 25th Ward Alderman’s office. The project is set to be completed by mid-September.
Lead Artists: Eric J. Garcia, Katia Perez-Fuentes, & Diana Solis
2016 Bench Mural Project
We are happy to announce that we were selected for the The Chicago Community Trust Acting Up $1,000 grant for our bench murals. This is a collaborative project with Elevarte Community Studio! #ChiTrustActingUp#OnTheTable2016
In conjunction with the rails to trails project “El Paseo” we are hoping to expand our garden to the area highlighted in purple. In time, we hope to include a food forest, urban farm, green house, lush green open space, nature play area for kids, a patio with a pergola, a brick fire pit/grill, new shed, and more raised beds.
