Enjoy a preview of the coming mural.

Kenwood and Simeon high school students*, under the guidance of artists Rahmaan “Statik” Barnes and Andy Bellomo, are creating a new mural for our 87th Street Shop (737 E. 87th Street). The mural project is a collaboration designed to give area students a rewarding, real-world experience creating art while exploring the possibilities of this as a career.

The mural will feature kids and music with a POP of everyone’s favorite gourmet popcorn. The completed project is expected to be revealed in late June.

87th/Cottage Grove Mural Garrett Popcorn Shops® is excited to collaborate once again with artist Rahmaan “Statik” Barnes and Kenwood and Simeon high school students via After School Matters to create a second mural for our 87th Street Shop (737 E. 87th Street). Long time Garrett Popcorn Shops® partner Chicago Trolley will provide transportation for the students.

Under the leadership of artists Statik and Andy Bellomo, students will incorporate elements of fun, sharing and happiness in a design that will complement Statik’s existing work, Global Intellect. The goal of the project is to give the students a rewarding, real-world experience creating art while exploring the possibilities of this career.
