Morton West Student Art Work display at North Riverside Park Mall
North Riverside Park Mall, located at 7501 West Cermak Road in North Riverside, IL, is introducing a new art display showcasing original art paintings from Morton West High School.
The artwork currently featured comes from 10th through 12th grade students in Ms. Lisa Duré’s Fine Art classes. These pieces include acrylic paintings of animals and portraits. The animals were created by 10th and 11th graders using analogous, complementary, monochromatic, or triad color schemes. The portraits were painted by students in grades 11th and 12th. They are self portraits and were to reflect some aspect of the artist’s personality through the use of facial expression, color and pattern.
Throughout the year, the Mall works with local schools and art departments to recognize and feature the works of young students. The Management Hallway is more than 100 feet long and provides a passage to shoppers and tenants alike. The brightly lit hallway is located on the upper level, next to Children’s Place and will now offer a gallery style setting with large frames and acknowledgments listing each student’s name, grade, and school. “We are excited to feature Morton West High School Art students this quarter”, says Lidia Darkova, Marketing Director, “with unique and colorful paintings that will not only decorate our hallway but allows us to introduce our shoppers and tenants to local student artworks.” The artwork is available for viewing at any time during the Mall’s business hours.
North Riverside Park Mall was purchased in 2004 by The Feil Organization, a national real estate developer and manager based in New York City. Founded over 50 years ago, The Feil Organization has developed, acquired or managed more than 20 million square feet of retail, commercial and industrial properties.
