Mural Honoring Logan Square’s Latino Community Coming To Affordable Housing Project Next To Blue Line
As construction progresses at Emmett Street Apartments, the all-affordable housing development near the Logan Square Blue Line station is getting a new name and artwork in honor of the neighborhood’s Latino community.
Bickerdike Redevelopment Corp. recently received a $15,000 city grant for the project, funds developers will put toward installing a vibrant mural on the residential side of the 100-unit building at 2602-38 N. Emmett St.
Artist Hector Duarte will create the piece through the Chicago Public Art Group. Duarte’s tile mosaic mural will depict Latino people from the neighborhood and a local leader after whom the building will be renamed, Bickerdike CEO Joy Aruguete said.
