Don’t miss a rare opportunity to view Marion Mahony Griffin’s 1931 mural, Fairies Feeding the Herons. Located just blocks from her family’s home, the exquisite mural incorporates themes and principles firmly held by Mahony throughout her life. When Marion returned to Chicago from Australia in the early 1930s, she created the mural at Armstrong Elementary School in Rogers Park where her sister was an art teacher. Presented in partnership with George B. Armstrong International Elementary School and the Walter Burley Griffin Society of America. No RSVP required. Participants are responsible for their own transportation.
