Artists hard at work on this Labor Day in Rogers Park.
I'm feeling very lazy and have spent most of the day avoiding anything that suggests productive activity, but i'm glad that there are other people, like these artists, who are out there getting things done. The first two pictures show the progress made by the artists painting the retaining wall next to the L tracks on the east side of Glenwood Avenue just south of Morse. I photographed this project on the first day of work less than two weeks ago. They've accomplished a lot in a short time. This mural has a strange, sic-fi, dystopian vibe, which i think will give me plenty to ponder in the future; and on a purely superficial level, every addition of color to this drab stretch of alley is a very welcome sight. The artist in the third picture is working on the west side of Glenwood, just past the sculpture garden that i photographed on 22 and 23 July.
