A formal unveiling ceremony of new murals designed and painted by high school-aged Rosemont students will take place Saturday.
The three murals, each 100-feet-long by 15-feet-tall, are located across from the Barry Recreational Center, 7128 Barry St.
Eight students from the neighborhood worked as village-hired apprentices this summer under the direction of Chicago muralist Rahmaan Statik to create the murals, which feature portraits of key figures in Mexican history.
Saturday's ceremony begins at 12:30 p.m. with a dance performance by Sol Azteca Folkloric Ensemble, a Des Plaines 6th grade dance group. The apprentice artists will be honored at 1 p.m.
