Artist Paul Barker’s mural “Evanston 2020” will be unveiled at Haven Middle School on Feb. 4. The mural celebrates the future of Evanston and depicts the street corners of Main Street and Custer Avenue. The 5-foot by 18-foot mural boasts forward-thinking and interesting details, and should inspire many generations of students with its thoughtful “green” theme.
Haven Middle School art teacher Denise Taylor announced the gift, which will be unveiled to Haven students, staff, families and community members on Feb. 4, during Paul Barker Day at Haven School. The art unveiling will begin at 7 p.m. in the arts wing of the school, 2417 Prairie Ave.
