Today, Kerry James Marshall is dedicating his 132-foot mural on the facade of the Chicago Cultural Center. The artist’s largest work to date, RUSH MORE is an homage to the women who have shaped Chicago’s cultural scene, and features portraits of Oprah Winfrey, poet Gwendolyn Brooks, and writer Sandra Cisneros. The artist charged the city $1 for the work, which was envisioned as new Mount Rushmore for Chicago.
