Community Mural Painting

We teamed up with the DuSable Museum of African American History to paint new community murals designed by artists at Stateville, including former students of the legendary Dr. Margaret Burroughs. The murals were designed over the 2020-21 academic year, including classes held over Zoom. These works challenge us to break the school to prison pipeline and build a new future of resistance and love.

The murals painted here were designed at Stateville by artists Devon Terrell, Mike Sullivan, Elton Williams, Johnny Taylor, and Juan Luna. Event photos taken by Olivia Ridge.
