The Nature of the Place - detail 2005

Portage Park Senior Center

Community Room: porcelain tiles, 48 x 144 inches

City of Chicago commission
Sonata Kazimieraitiene, assistant artist

The mural illustrates relationships between memory, nature and place... The diver and the pools refer to the park’s special history, when marshland gave way to a swimming hole, a lagoon and eventually a pool good enough and big enough to host Olympic trials.
