There’s public art peeking out from many of Evanston’s underpasses or splashed across buildings. Some of the murals carry a clear message — artist Ben Blount’s “Resolved” quotes Evanston’s Commitment to End Structural Racism and Achieve Racial Equity, a resolution passed by the city council recognizing Evanston’s past discriminatory policies.The meaning of other murals is more up to interpretation — “Fluent Foundations” by Molly Zakrajsek abstractly spirals up its underpass, prompting more questions than it answers. However, all the murals bring a little more color to the city streets.
