Brother Mark Elder, C.M., adds four new murals to the public art project begun in 2016, "The Story of the Little School Under the 'L.'" The ongoing project features a series of murals on the massive concrete pillars supporting the CTA's 'L' tracks at Fullerton Avenue. Each mural depicts a prominent, historical figure that has made an impact on DePaul University.
The new murals feature: DePaul's relationship with the Sheffield Neighborhood Association; the original athletes known as the "D-Men," from which the nickname "Blue Demons" emerged; The Rev. Francis Xavier McCabe, C.M., DePaul's second president who kept the university open during World War I; and a pillar featuring Rose Vaughn and Marion Amoureux, the university's first African-American women to graduate.
