This Hidden Mural …

Anyone driving on Ashland Avenue near Monroe Street has likely seen the colorful mural on the side of the United Electrical Workers union hall.Completed in 1999 by Mexican artist Daniel Manrique, it shows people joining hands in solidarity and celebrates international unity among workers.Less well-known because it’s out of public view is the two-story mural inside, completed in 1974, that climbs the hall’s main staircase, immersing anyone who walks through it in the history of the union.
