HHES artists create and share new mural
The most recent work of art to be featured on the Iris Rubber Company building in Cicero, is a painting created by students at Hamilton Heights Elementary School commemorating the work of artist Yayoi Kusama.
Kusama, 92, is one of the most celebrated Japanese contemporary artists. She works primarily in sculpture and installation, but is also active in painting, performance, video art, fashion, poetry, fiction, and other arts. Her work is based in conceptual art and was inspired by American Abstract impressionism. She credits creating art to having a positive influence on her mental health.
