Join Filmaker TG Jamroz for a screening of the documentary The Story of The Uptown Post Office Murals and Sullivan, Sandberg, Poor followed by a performance of music from the film with the Pickin’ Bubs, The Platinum Tears, TG Jamroz, and Rick Nitz.
The Murals is the new documentary about the New Deal era Uptown Post Office murals in Chicago. The film explores how and why they were made by Henry Varnum Poor, why they feature Carl Sandburg and Louis Sullivan, and how they inspire today.
The Old Town School shares in the New Deal legacy and also features a mural of its own.
