Lincoln Park Zoo Mural

The interactive area near an elevator bank at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago features this storybook mural of the residents of the Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo, by Chicago artist Steve Musgrave.

“Throughout the preparation of the final art, I was conscious of the kids who would be living with these murals," said Musgrave. "To reflect the variety of children, I showed some of the younger animals as somewhat shy, and attached to their parents, others as adventurous and a little more independent, but they all have a clear family connection. I also tried to include a lot of detail and visual interest in the lower third of the murals. Baby animals peek out from the mural at a height that is eye-level for children."

The murals were prepared digitally, and were printed on rolls of special paper and installed like wallpaper.
