Palmer Park Murals – Chicago IL

Description

“Palmer Park became part of the Chicago Park District in 1934, when the city’s 22 independent park commissions were consolidated into a new unified system. Later that year, park district art director James Edward McBurney created three murals for Palmer Park as a Works Progress Administration project funded by the federal government. The three are: “Native Americans,” “explorers,” and “Dutch settlers.”
