Related Midwest commissioned After School Matters teens to produce artwork for their new building in the West Loop. More than 30 teens worked together alongside representatives from Related Midwest and industry professionals on a client-driven project, honing their teamwork and problem-solving skills. The group designed abstract pieces, learned techniques to cut and lay tiles, and created the mosaics. Each mural ranges between 2.5-3 feet in width and length, is made with entirely Venetian glass, and matches a color theme for each of the six floors of the Landmark West Loop parking garage.
The mosaics were unveiled during the grand opening for Landmark West Loop on October 24, 2017.
