Fieldhouse Murals

They made art for the people. The artists are long gone, but their work remains, as free to the public today as when the pictures were painted nearly 100 years ago. The murals that decorate fieldhouses in the Chicago Park District, particularly on the South Side, are mostly restored but often ignored. On the Artbeat, we get to the mural of the story on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm.
