We Are Here Our Time Is Now

"We Are Here Our Time Is Now" (2015) is the work of Mix Masters Murals, a creative collaboration of husband and wife team Dustin Harris and Lea Pinsky.

For this mural on Chicago's Howard Street, they wanted to "recognize not only the position of Rogers Park in the city, the state of Illinois, and the country of the U.S., but also tell the specific story of local family and community," said Lea and Dustin.

In this mural, the father and daughter are sharing a memory of a visit downtown. The mandala signifies the center of the community and the center of the self. The IL cardinal, stars and state outline signify place. The arrows and the clock signify our movement in time, and the phrase "We Are Here, Our Time is Now" inspires us to value this present moment and the world around us.”
