Painting at Moraine Beach is Complete!

August 9, 2023

Thank you to the artist Christie Russert! Christie and her husband Joe worked hard this summer to bring her winning design to life on the two concrete structures. Be sure to stop by and check them out!

Project Background: In February, the Park District of Highland Park and The Art Center Highland Park began seeking submissions to decorate the two concrete structures at Moraine Beach. Artists participated in a design competition and submissions were due in March. Submissions were evaluated by a panel of judges who narrowed down the submissions to two finalists. The finalists’ designs were shared with the community through a survey and then shared with the Park District Board of Commissioners who determined the winning design in April.
