The Hmong American Partnership (HAP) was recently awarded an $800,000 grant that will create about 40 new jobs on the East Side. The grant comes from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service and was advocated for by U.S. Rep.
The mural at Margaret Park would be painted on the concrete retaining wall located at the southeast corner of the park. Sara K. Udvig, the artist commissioned to paint a mural at Margaret Park, recently completed a community mural at the Shamrock Apartments in District 1 with the help of neighbors, pictured below.
While park renovations have been pushed back until next summer, Margaret Park may at least be getting a new mural this season, if the weather allows it.
