Chicago Rooms, 2nd Floor North

This exhibition chronicles how the Organization of Black Arts and Culture -- a collection of 14 designers, photographers, painters and others -- designed and produced a seminal mural for and within Chicago's Black South Side communities. The Wall of Respect received national critical acclaim when it was unveiled in 1967 and its legacy has reemerged today as one of the most significant projects in Chicago's storied public art history. Part of the City of Chicago's Year of Public Art.
