EVER, Immigrants, and the Eagles Wings in Chicago

Street Artist “Ever” spread his wings in Chicago last week to radiate his kaleidoscopic vision of the immigrant multitudes across a huge expanse of wall in the Pilsen neighborhood.  Just outside the University Station Condominium, one the neighborhoods most diversely populated, this inclusionary vision of the American eagle refers directly to the experiences of the immigrant community who negotiate themselves through the obstacles and opportunities inherent in moving from one country to another. Says Nick Marzullo of Pawn Works, Ever “had a blast as he was getting quite a lot of positive attention and press while here in Chicago.”
