Rockford Public Library unveils new interactive wall mural


ROCKFORD (WREX) – If you visit the Hart Interim Library on N. Church Street in Rockford, you’ll notice a new addition to the building.

The Rockford Public Library has unveiled an interactive wall mural in the Youth Services Department on the building’s second floor. Created by local artist Jenny Mathews, the mural is an interactive graphic novel and comic book style chalk wall. Children can use chalk to add to the mural or use the mural as a backdrop for portraits.

The mural was funded by a City Arts Action grant through the Rockford Area Arts Council.
