DLC Alum in the News

New mural at Addison and Avondale by Rafael Lopez; it all started with an idea by DLC alum Joanie Friedman

Chicago Tonight recently aired the story about a new mural by San Diego illustrator Rafael Lopez at Addison and Avondale. The idea for the mural began with DLC alum Joanie Friedman. After a neighborhood shooting, police urged neighbors to get to know one another and Friedman connected with 200 people from her community – including National Museum of Mexican Art curator Cesareo Moreno and community activist Anna Sobor – to bring her idea to life. Watch this inspiring story of the power of civic and cultural collaboration below.
