The Art Movement and Boys & Girls Club of Joliet Reveal Large-Scale Mural on Oct 20, 2022

A project, three years in the making will be unveiled early this evening. The Boys & Girls Club of Joliet in collaboration with the The Art Movement will be installing a mural at the Club’s main facility at 226 E. Clinton Street in Joliet. Project Manager at The Art Movement in Joliet, Dante DiBartolo says the mural will grow over time as children can add to the mural.

The 25′ x 60′ mural is a joint effort of community youth, the City of Joliet, and local artists. Funding for the project was provided by a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) grant, which supports development activities that build stronger and more vibrant communities.

The unveiling will occur at 5:45 today, October 20th.

Free parking is available at the Joliet Central High School south lots.

The Boys & Girls Club has been servicing Joliet for 70 years.
