Eee-tu (E2 building mural)

The painting is called “Eee-tu” (What Redwing called to Drake) 1890 Maple Evanston, Illinois, and is an abstract depiction of its home city.   Interpreting the names off artwork is almost an art, itself.  But we can tell you there is a red winged blackbird on on end, though we see no evidence of a drake on the other. There’s also a stylization of the CTA’s Purple Line L, which makes sense since the train runs just a few blocks away, and the mural reflects the city.

It’s a welcome addition to the neighborhood, and a great way to enhance the face of a parking garage.  Now if every parking garage in Evanston could get on board, we’d really have something.
