Community and Neighborhood Improvement Project (CNIP) proudly presents "The Major Taylor Trail Mural" ribbon cutting ceremony to unveil the new mural on the Little Calumet River Bridge. The mural, which will tell the story of the life of Marshall "Major" Taylor, will be created by renowned African-American artist Bernard Williams. This new work of art will be the largest mural ever created honoring the life of Major Taylor.
The ceremony will also honor the 10-year anniversary of the Major Taylor Trail and the Major Taylor Cycling Club Chicago (MTC3), as well as the 5-year anniversary for Women RUN the World (WRTW). Cook County Commissioner Moore will present a resolution to MTC3 and WRTW in honor of their club anniversaries.
Women Run the World will sponsor their annual 5K walk/run that will begin at the start of the Major Taylor Trail and go past the new mural, in honor of the effort of CNIP and in partnership with the Major Taylor Cycling Club Chicago and Friends of the Major Taylor Trail, immediately following the ribbon cutting ceremony.
The ribbon cutting ceremony is free and open to the public. The cost to participate in the 5K walk/run is $35, which includes a medal and commemorative shirt.
