Murals and Public Art with Lea Pinsky
Wednesday, November 2, at 7 p.m. in the Glenview Public Library Multipurpose Room
Join us for our November event with Lea Pinsky, the Executive Director at Art Encounter, a non-profit art organization in Evanston. An Evanstonian by birth, Lea has an established 20+ year career in public art and arts education program management in Chicago, and has also pursued a creative life as a muralist, and formerly as an actress. She has held leadership positions at Chicago area arts organizations such as Lifeline Theatre, Urban Gateways, Chicago Humanities Festival, and Columbia College Chicago. With her artist husband Dustin Harris, she has painted 25 murals in schools, public spaces, commercial venues, and private residences. Together they managed the Mile of Murals in Rogers Park from 2010-2017, which annually produced new murals on the CTA Red Line from Estes to Pratt in Rogers Park, enlivening and brightening the community. In 2017, they brought their vision to Evanston, launching the Evanston Mural Arts Program under Art Encounter. To date, the program has produced 25 murals with over 20 professional artists and over 400 youth.
