Last spring, all 69 Beye 5th graders with their art teacher Kristen Sundquist studied 100 architecturally significant structures with architect Adrienne McMullen, who runs OPEF’s Architecture Adventure program. The students then made detailed sketches of their favorite structures.

Parent volunteers transferred the drawings onto a wall in a Beye hallway, and the students painted their permanent mural. Thanks to Noel Tetrev for creating the beautiful frame, and to Oak Park photographer David Kindler for the photograph above.
