The idea is the creation of

a cultural backdrop with

billboards and murals within

which to drop the retail. Ida

B Wells/ Madden Park past

should be preserved as part

of culture. Like the “Cows”

exhibit in downtown Chicago,

these installations will

create pride in the neighborhood

for all residents

and stakeholders, drive foot

traffic and boost retail sales

per square foot.
