Granville Avenue Buildings

Mixed media mosaic
2014, Arts in Transit


Inspired by Chicago’s rich architectural heritage, artist Kyungmi Shin assembles a collage of buildings and homes situated along Granville Avenue, celebrating the history and diversity of Edgewater’s built environment. This group portrait features structures both significant and quaint and includes the iconic Sovereign Building and Berger Park Mansion. The sweeping paths of color behind the buildings are symbolic of Chicago’s legendary “wind” and the fast growing dynamics of the surrounding community.
