Collaborative mural at Park School, self-contained Special Education, Evanston, IL, Green Star Movement, 2016

For the completion and installation of this 600-square-foot bricolage mosaic mural, artists Teresa Miró and Hana Kulovik (Green Star Movement) collaborated with Park School´ students, teachers, assistants, volunteers and interns during two phases in 2016: winter and spring. The design represents the school’s values and honors the memory of a social worker loved and admired by everybody at Park School: Lisa Weiland O’Brien, who died tragically in 2013. The mosaic was designed by the mural committee (staff, Lisa’s family members, parents and district administrators) and Green Star Movement artists. Since its installation at the end of May, the mural has become a cultural landmark.
