If you look closely as you walk or drive by the old railroad retaining wall on the south side of Church Street east of Darrow Avenue in Evanston, you can just see the outline of a new mural planned to be painted there this summer.
Look the other direction and you can’t miss the mural the same artists — Dustin Harris and Lea Pinsky — completed last year on the north retaining wall left from the old Mayfair rail viaduct that once crossed over the street.
“Trust Your Heart” is the theme of the already completed mural, and “Live Your Dream” is the title of the one just getting started.
The mural project is funded by the city on the recommendation of the Evanston Arts Council.
The city’s cultural arts coordinator, Jennifer Lasik, says the initial hope was to complete both murals last year, but delays forced postponement of the second mural until now.
The city so far has paid $11,400 for the work.
