Beverly Mural Commemorative Print

Receive a limited-edition, signed print with your gift of $250 

Since its creation five years ago, the Beverly Mural at the south end of 99th and Walden has become a beloved community icon. To mark its fifth anniversary, the Beverly Area Arts Alliance (the Alliance) has commissioned a limited-edition fine print of the mural to raise funds for the 2022 Beverly Art Walk. Only 75 prints are available. These exclusive art prints, measuring 31 by 16 inches, are numbered and signed by artist Mitchell R. Egly.

Donors who make a leadership gift of $250 or more will receive a limited edition Beverly Mural print. Those who pledge less than $250 will be entered into a raffle for a poster, with a winner drawn before Christmas.

DONATE NOW

Proceeds from this campaign will allow the Alliance to once again waive all fees for artists and businesses to participate in the Art Walk in 2022, after another economically challenging year. The Alliance believes that, like all professionals, artists should be paid for their work. Renowned Chicago printmaker The Bird Machine was commissioned for print production, and Egly will receive a percentage of donations.

Make a donation of $250 or more online to receive this limited edition fine print. Upon receipt, the Alliance will provide free local delivery. The Alliance is a volunteer-run 501c3 non-profit, 100% of donations directly support the arts in Beverly/Morgan Park and are fully tax deductible. 

About the Mural

In 2016, the Beverly Area Arts Alliance (the Alliance) issued a call to artists for a unique and lasting work of public art celebrating our “village in the city” on commission with funding from Beverly Bank. Ultimately, they selected Mitchell R. Egly from a pool of more than 50 applicants. A lover of history, Egly researched Beverly/Morgan Park and worked elements such as the Beverly Castle, the South Side Irish parade and 95th Street into his design. “I am proud to have my work so well represented within such a supportive community,” Egly has said of the project. 

For more information on how to make a donation and receive this limited edition fine print, please email Monica Wilczak, co-founder of the Alliance.
