Rosa Parks Murals for Rosa Parks Apartments (2010)


Rosa Parks Apartments is Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation’s first comprehensively planned, energy-efficient, and environmentally friendly development. archi-treasures conducted a series of free mosaic workshops open to residents with the goal of fostering community. The final product was three floor-to-ceiling entrance panels and an entrance wall celebrating Rosa Parks and her life. The project allowed for employment of several community residents through the Put Illinois to Work Program. rosa parks   Partners: Bickerdike Revelopment Corporation Community Area- Humboldt Park (23) View archi-treasures in a larger map

Westhaven Mosaic Project (2009)


westhavenmosaic   Formerly the Henry Horner Homes, Westhaven is located just north of the United Center on the near west side. The challenge or working in such a neighborhood is to work with residents whose lives are vastly different from one another in an attempt to facilitate real community. archi-treasures embraces this challenge and has performed multiple successful projects in Westhaven Park over the years. In 2009, archi-treasures partnered with Brinshore Michaels Development and conducted a series of mosaic workshops which engaged Westhaven Park residents of all ages. These residents came together to create a beautiful mosaic wall which was later dedicated during a beautiful ceremony.
