Cover Our Rust - Public Art Project, May 13, 2017

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 4/17! "Cover Our Rust” will bring together artists, civic organizations, non-profits, religious entities, families, educational institutions, local government, and others, in creating a community oriented unique piece of artwork along both sides of the Circle Avenue Bridge. The idea consists of offering independent artists and organizations such as little league, the Library, the Park District, Cub Scouts, Kiwanis, etc., to adopt one or more 10 foot section and create something artistic and flattering for display. This project will serve to bring the community together in a fun and creative initiative while beautifying the bridge. Applications are available here. Application filing period will close April 17th, 2017.  Approved applicants will be notified via email. Once approved, a $30 non-refundable fee is required and a hold-harmless agreement must be executed. Included with the cost is the paint, paint brushes, keepsake tote bag, food and beverages. 

Completed applications can be forwarded via email to or dropped off at Creativita located at 7502 Madison, or at Village Hall, located at 517 Desplaines. Questions? Please email or call 708-615-6203.
