The Yorkville Public Library and Kendall Arts Guild are joining forces to raise funds to have a local artist, Eulojio Ortega, paint a mural at the library, located at 902 Game Farm Road in Yorkville.
An example of Ortega’s work can be viewed at the Kendall County Courthouse, where a mural featuring the history of Kendall County, funded through donations to the Kendall Arts Guild, is on display above the foyer entrance.
“We hope to achieve the same kind of impact with a mural at the library,” said Sharyl Iwanski, newly elected president of Kendall Arts Guild. You can also see murals and more that Ortega has created on his website, chicagomuralist.com.
KAG is a nonprofit corporation and all donations are tax-deductible. Checks can be made out to the Kendall Arts Guild with Yorkville Library Mural in the memo and mailed to Kendall Arts Guild, P.O. Box 117, Yorkville, IL 60560.
