On Thursday October 1 at the American Red Cross Headquarters ( 2111 Dana Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45207), Artworks, Xavier, and the Community of Evanston dedicated “The Spirit of Progress” mural.
The 151 foot mural is a result of a two year collaboration spearheaded by Xavier University and Evanston Community Council and was designed by noted artist, Jimi Jones, after an extensive community engaged design process led by Artworks. The finished work of art occupies an expansive panorama on Duck Creek Road that can be enjoyed up close or passing by on the interstate. Artworks employed local teens to paint the mural this summer under lead teaching artist and Xavier adjunct art faculty member, Jordanne Renner. Art Chair Kelly Phelps and Sean Rhiney served on the Mural’s Steering Committee alongside Evanston Community Council President Anzora Adkins, ECC Beautification Chair,Veda Uddin, and Art Beyond Boundaries Gallery Director, Jymi Bolden.
You can get a sneak peak of the mural from Soapbox and learn about the origins of the design as well as background about some recent public art collaborations with Evanston that involved Xavier faculty, staff, and students and community members here: Evanston Community Council, Xavier and ArtWorks partnership produces more than a mural
We need your help to make Evanston a healthier, safer, and thriving community!
The Evanston Community Council is launching the Evanston Pathways to Health project in 2015. This exciting new program is part of Interact for Health’s Thriving Communities initiative. Our initial aim is to inspire active living in our community, focusing first on our children. New Urbanist Gil Penalosa said “Children are an indicator species. If we can build a successful city for children, we will have a successful city for all people”. We wants our children to be safe, happy and healthy!
The initial phase will begin with the implementation of a Safe Routes to School Program that not only includes infrastructure improvements to improve traffic safety, but also a Walking School Bus complete with Walking Conductors. It also includes plans to build a series of stations along the school route that will encourage children to observe and learn about their neighborhood while improving their motor skills.
In addition to improving traffic safety, the overall safety of our children (and all of our residents) is a top priority, and is mandatory for making Evanston the thriving, walkable community we want it to be. The Pathways to Health project will address neighborhood safety while making our residents healthier and happier. We will design a series of programs to engage residents in a variety of activities throughout the year. That’s where you come in, we want your feedback and buy-in!
