Street Murals by Rahmaan Statik Barnes seen at West Ogden Avenue & South Central Park Avenue, Chicago - The Beacon of Light

The Beacon of Light

Local artist Rahmaan Statik Barnes was commissioned by the Chicago Public Art Group to paint “The Beacon of Light" (acrylic, 32' x 90'; 2006) on this building at the intersection of West Ogden and South Central Park Avenues.

He was assisted by Max Sansing in the creation of this mural, which celebrates intergenerational unity for the residents of the surrounding Lawndale community. The mural shows the residents of Lawndale in a positive light, and some of the children depicted in it were recruited to help paint it.
