These two images show how the mural on the 16th Street viaduct looked when it was first painted and how it looks now.  The artist that painted this piece was Aurelio Diaz who was responsible for many pieces in the community including some of the work inside Juarez High School and at St Pius.

The top image was sent to us by the Chicago Public Art Group from their archives.
