Bellwood library in hunt for new director John Keister & Assoc. hired to facilitate search for Jacqueline Spratt’s replacement By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

The Bellwood Public Library Board of Trustees has started the search for a new executive director with the selection of John Keister & Associates — a head hunting firm based in Vernon Hills that specializes in finding library executives. During a special meeting held at the library on July 5, library board members met with John Keister — who owns and operates the firm along with his wife and daughter, according to the company’s website — and shared the criteria they were looking for in a new director. Board members voted unanimously to hire Keister’s firm during a regular meeting on June 12. See BELLWOOD SEARCH on page 3

It took a small village to install a new mural at the Peace Garden on 17th Ave. and Madison St. in Maywood. The artist, said the garden’s facilitator, Barbara Cole of Maywood Youth Mentoring, is Juiette Zhamaul Payne. A craftsman named Bernard bolted the mural to the brick wall. A host of volunteers helped him, she said.

VILLAGE people

Paul Obis, Melrose Park native, East grad, founded ‘Vegetarian Times’ We met Fred Rogers through Paul Obis. More on that. And for a few of our early years here at the Forest Park Review and Wednesday Journal we shared a giant, expensive CompuGraphic typesetting machine with Vegetarian Times. That was the magazine Paul and Clare, his first wife, started in their apartment on Austin Boulevard in Oak Park way back in 1974. Magazine isn’t quite right. Paul described it as a photocopied newsletter that he’d deliver to a small number of subscribers. That changed, though, as Vegetarian Times rather quickly became the voice of vegetarians across America, reflecting in the perfect moment the intersection of health, animal ethics, and, in a notable way, celebrity. Well Paul died a week ago in California. He was a Melrose Park native, a graduate of Proviso East High School and just 66. His wife Janeen called with the not unexpected news. Paul had Lewy body dementia, a not uncommon but certainly very hard illness. Janeen called her husband a provider and a force for humanity. She said he was forward thinking, creative and intellectually

energetic. He was, she said, brilliant, eccentric, a sweet gentle soul and a humanitarian. Those are apt words to describe the man I knew so many years ago. A conversation with Paul would go on for a long while and in many unexpected directions. But it was always interesting. Paul and Clare sold the magazine at least a couple of times. After the first sale, they stayed on as publisher and food editor respectively. That kept them across the hall in our longtime offices on Oak Park Avenue. If I remember this right, Paul got the chance to buy back his magazine and he took it. But this time he brought along a minority investor, Fred Rogers, not surprisingly a vegetarian. Mister Rogers was a silent but not uninterested partner and that led to his visit to Oak Park about 1987. Clare came across to tell us that Fred Rogers would be in the building that afternoon and that any of us with small kids who wanted to meet him should gather up after school. Paul and Clare had six sons: Nick (Jess), Quentin (Maryam), Paul W., Kevin (Beth), Timothy (Anastasia) and Gregory.

Broadview to sell daycare building to owner Precious Heart Daycare’s owner offers $300K to purchase building

By IGOR STUDENKOV Contributing Reporter

During a July 2 meeting, the village of Broadview Board of Trustees voted unanimously to accept Precious Heart Daycare, 2301 W. Roosevelt Rd., owner Gloria Lynch’s bid to buy the village-owned building where her business has been located for the past 14 years. The news is sure to be welcomed by the families and employees who depend on the daycare’s services. In the months ahead of the July 2 meeting, Lynch had expressed some concern about the uncertainty that her business would be thrust into if she didn’t secure ownership of the facility she had been renting from the village. Village officials said that they have been looking to sell the building because they wanted to get out of the landlord business. Matt Ingersoll, the village’s special counsel, explained in May, as part of the process of preparing to sell the building, the village moved to evict Lynch, effective July 1. He added that the village wouldn’t have any issue with Lynch buying the building herself. Broadview officials explained that the vote

BELLWOOD SEARCH 3 months from page 1 The library’s former executive director, Jacqueline Spratt, resigned in April after a public falling out with some board members. At the time, Spratt said in an interview that she was dissatisfied with the way the board had conducted a performance evaluation, adding that she thought the evaluation was arbitrary and unfair. During the Thursday meeting, however, library board President Dorothy ClarkSmith attributed much of the conflict between Spratt and some board members to the fact that Spratt did not have a master of library science (MLS) degree — a basic job requirement for library executive director positions. “I want someone with an MLS, because that’s why we’re in the problem we’re in right now,” Clark-Smith said during the July 5 meeting. “We did not have a library director with an MLS and when she was asked to get one she refused.” Keister, whose firm was chosen from among a pool of three finalists, said, in addition to having an MLS, they would also need to possess certain intangible strengths, primarily “passion,” “leadership” and “a well-developed sense of humor.” Board member Deborah Giles, who was a vocal supporter of Spratt’s, said that she

didn’t actually make the sale final — it just meant that Broadview was interested in her offer and wanted to work something out. The actual details will be negotiated in the coming weeks and the agreement will come back to the board for final approval. For the past 14 years, Lynch has been operating Precious Heart Daycare out of the village-owned building. In a May interview, she said that she employed 15 people and takes care of “maybe about 60 kids” from Broadview, Maywood, Bellwood and other nearby suburbs. At the time, Lynch said that she was trying to apply for a business loan. During the July 2 meeting, Broadview Building Commissioner David Upshaw said that, while several people expressed interest in the building, Lynch was the only one to submit a written offer and provide proof that she has the funding to pay for it. She offered to pay $300,000 and, since there were no other applicants that went all in, her bid was a winning one by default. Upshaw recommended that the village take Lynch up on her offer. “My understanding is Precious Heart has been in the community for 14-plus years,”

he said. “They invested over $60,000 in a village-owned property. I know in the past 14-plus years, they’ve been paying rent on a consistent basis. They had a few hiccups, but they’re all caught up and are actually current on the rent. […] I think [Lynch] is an asset to the community, there’s definitely a need in the community.” Trustee John Ealey said he had no problem with selling the building to Lynch, but he was concerned that the building wasn’t appraised. Upshaw responded that he recently had a nearby building with very similar square-footage appraised, and that it made no sense to spend another $2,000 to get a similar result. Trustee Sherman Jones said that the Precious Hearts building was appraised “a few years ago” and, based on that, the $300,000 bid was reasonable. He also argued that estimating the value of the building based on a similar nearby building was a common practice. “It doesn’t make any sense to debate it, disagree with it,” Jones added. “If we don’t take the deal, if we don’t take the $300,000,

wants a candidate with experience before pointing out that the next director will also need to know how to navigate through different board conflicts. “No newbies,” she said. “We have had problems on this board and we need someone that has had some experience with that.” “I feel like there’s a lack of cohesiveness and teamwork with this board,” said member Gloria Ward. Giles added that she prefers someone who is “not corruptible,” “strong-minded” and who has “vision” toward the “good of the community.” “The director we had before had a really strong relationship with the community and that is very, very important,” Giles said. Board member Connie Riales said that she wants someone who can maintain the library’s programming for senior citizens and young people, but who is also enterprising enough to search out for alternative revenue sources. “A person who is coming in should also have the get-up and go, as far as going and out and getting grants,” Riales said. “We can’t be stagnant. Go out and try to get grants.” Keister said that he would limit his search to a regional pool of candidates who are already familiar with Illinois’ statutes and unique political climate. He also said that “there’s a pretty good chance” that the new library director will be someone new to the position, but who has ample experience as, say, a department head at a large library. That person, he added,

would be intimate with many of the dayto-day functions and crises that accompany operating a library. Keister explained that, nationally, the pool of veteran library directors has hollowed out over the years, with many retiring. In addition, he said, a phenomenon that happened in higher education may also have some bearing on the national shortage of experience library leadership. “In the 1990s, we told kids not to go to library school,” he said, adding that some colleges even closed their library schools. During a phone interview on July 6, ClarkSmith said that the search should take about three months. In the meantime, Kristin Schultz, the library’s reference director, is serving as interim executive director. Schultz has not applied for the permanent position, Clark-Smith said. She said she could not recall the cost of Keister’s contract, but said that the firm was “one of the lower bidders.” Keister’s firm, which has been operating since 1987, has been rather prolific in the Chicago suburbs, with Arlington Heights and Park Ridge among a few of the firm’s recent clients. Keister was paid $19,500 and $16,500, respectively, for those jobs. Keister said that on July 5 that he’d already met with library staff twice and is currently working on launching a website for the candidate search that will complement a variety of other search methods, such as postings on traditional job sites for libraries. He said that, along with other intangible

we’ll still have the property with a tenant, we’re still a landlord, and it’s not back on the tax rolls.” Trustee Judy Brown-Marino wondered where the proceeds from the sale would go. Broadview finance director Timothy Hicks said that part was entirely up to the board. Brown-Marino also raised an issue with the part of Lynch’s offer that entailed her applying for a 10 percent rebate, which would mean that she would get $30,000 back, reducing the amount she has to pay to $270,000. The village attorney and Upshaw stated that this aspect of the offer could be discussed during negotiations. CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com

Bellwood library now site of notary publics Community members looking for a notary public — or someone appointed by the government to act as an impartial witness during the signing of important documents, such as ballot petition sheets, can now go to the Bellwood Public Library. According to library Board President Dorothy Clark-Smith, around three employees of the library were recently trained to conduct notarizations. qualities, any future library director in Bellwood would need to understand how fast libraries as community institutions are evolving — and the extent to which that disruptive pace of change threatens the very existence of the venerable institutions. The ideal candidate would “see the library in a new light … understand trends, and know where things are going,” he said, before referencing a 2017 Pew Research Center study. The Pew study showed that millennials, people 18 to 35, were more likely to have used a library in the past year than any other adult generation cohort — but that a significant portion of that took place online, such as on a library’s website.

D209 debates required parent meeting Board members split on effectiveness of ‘required’ annual orientation meeting

By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

Starting next school year, parents at Proviso Township High Schools District 209 will be required to attend an annual orientation meeting. In April, the D209 school board voted unanimously to add the requirement to the district’s School-Parent Compact, which every student, parent and/ or legal guardian is required to sign. During a June 12 regular meeting, however, some board members said they still have concerns about the idea of mandatory meetings. The lingering concerns mentioned by those board members, Theresa Kelly and Della Patterson, prompted a debate about the appropriateness of a required meeting and whether it will accomplish what its supporters — particularly board member Rodney Alexander, who heads the Parent and Community Engagement Committee that produced the new policy — envision. “Can we force parents to come to a required meeting?” asked Kelly, noting that, while she wants to see more parental involvement and increased student achievement, she was concerned about whether or not the new policy met the “free and appropriate education rules.” She also said that, since there are no

consequences for parents who don’t attend the mandatory meeting, the district can’t say that the meeting is “required,” and indicated the effectiveness of the required meeting might be undercut by the lack of consequences. Dan Johnson, the district’s director of student and family services, said the required meeting, which was included in Board Policy 8:95, is unrelated to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act — a law that says students with special education needs, disabilities and similar services should get a “free and appropriate public education” — which Kelly seemed to be referencing. “That’s separate from the parent meeting,” Johnson said, adding that the parent meeting is part of a more comprehensive School-Parent compact, which outlines the responsibilities of the school, parent and students. The required meeting is the first bullet point under the “Parent Responsibilities” section of the compact. Johnson conceded that there are no consequences for parents who don’t attend the required meetings, but said the district is not approaching the meetings, and the wider School-Parent compact, “from a consequences standpoint.” District 209 Supt. Jesse Rodriguez, echoing

Johnson, said the district is approaching the required meeting from a “growth” perspective, not a “deficit” perspective, meaning that the district wants to focus on students’ and parents’ strengths and not their weaknesses. Board member Della Patterson said that, while she voted for the required meeting back in April, she didn’t “recall the word ‘require’” in the proposed measure. “One of my whole concerns with this compact was the word ‘mandatory,’” Patterson said, adding that the words mandatory and required are virtually the same thing. “You can’t make a parent do anything.” Patterson argued that the concept of requiring parents to attend a meeting might be off-putting for many, resulting in some parents deciding not to attend simply because the district is trying to make them. “We need to search for a better word,” Patterson said. “In this community, when you use the word ‘required,’ you’re going to get pushback because people think you’re making them do something.” Alexander said the required meeting will help cultivate a stronger partnership between the district and parents. The meeting, he said, will also help bolster “leading indicators,” such as school

attendance, homework completion and classroom preparedness. He also explained that the specifics of the required meetings, such as the date it will be held and how it will be structured, are still being worked out in his committee, which includes local youth organizers, feeder school administrators, clergy, parents and other community members. “We use parent partnership as a cliché in this district and have done it for so long,” Alexander said. “With partnership is accountability, responsibility and shared input.” Board member Claudia Medina said the required meeting, and the overall compact, will help create new cultures at each of the district’s building. “I’m glad we’re [thinking] with a growth mindset instead of a deficit education mindset,” Medina said. Board President Ned Wager, who heads up the board’s Policy Committee, said the new policy “was not put together lightly,” and indicated that labeling the mandatory gathering a “required meeting” might at least underscore how important it is for parents to attend. “If the school said there was a required meeting, I would go to it,” he said.

and get involved in sports. The woman tried to get Craine-Farries involved in cheerleading, soccer and swimming. Once she tried golf, it was a hit. “Just swinging the club is really fun, when you get a low score it feels really great,” CraineFarries said. “It’s really calming to play, it’s not loud like every other sport.” She continued to hone her game and, by the time she got to eighth grade, started noticing that she was a little better than those around her. Her coaches would pull her aside during practice to give more targeted lessons. Her sophomore year she was appointed captain of the Proviso East women’s golf team, after the coach noticed how she always put equipment away after practice and constantly worked to better her game. Craine-Farries felt proud but nervous about the distinction—as team captain, all eyes were on her as she shot first at matches. “I learned patience and to always push forward, even though sometimes you might not have the best things,” she said. “One day either you will gain the things you need to get to where you want to be, or the people that you have made friends with along the way will help you.” Over the next two years, she said her relationship with the team coaches and members

evolved into lifelong friends. They would text each other jokes and talk about what’s going on in their lives. By her senior year, she said the team grew from just two golfers when she started to about six. She was named to the Mid Suburban League West All-Conference Academic team. When she started looking at colleges her criteria was twofold—the school must offer a golf program and she wanted to feel a family vibe, like the one at Proviso East. Although she got 27 college offers, when she saw the $10,000 scholarship and met the team at Missouri Valley, she knew she had found a match. This fall, she looks forward to refining her golf game. She said she’ll miss the team and coach who made her four years at PMSA great, and hopes to eventually follow in their footsteps and become coach of a high school golf team. “Never give up. Even when it seems hard, just keep pushing forward,” she said.

Each classroom will have 40 students — 20 in the morning and 20 in the afternoon half-day class. “Preschool is imperative for our children to continue to build upon their current skill levels to prepare for Kindergarten,” said Lauren Pace, the district’s early childhood

coordinator. “This gives our children the opportunity to jumpstart their academic career, to build relationships, develop literacy and mathematics skills, improve socialemotional skills and learn how to collaborate with one another,” she said. Parents interested in enrolling their children in the program will participate in a screening process that will be held be held July 17 through July 26. Families interested in enrolling their children in the program can fill out a request for screening online at maywood89. org/preschool/preschool-screening/.

Maywood native celebrates 20 years of caring Bernadette Hicks, owner of ABC Toon Town in Oak Park, marks two decades in business

By MICHAEL ROMAIN

ALL IN THE FAMILY: Hicks celebrates on July 7 in Oak Park with her parents, Robert, fourth from right, and Genevia Williams Sr., and her siblings.

Editor

It takes a village to raise a child. Bernadette Hicks — a Maywood native and Proviso East graduate — knows that old adage more intimately than most. She owns and operates ABC Toon Town child care center — one of the few AfricanAmerican-owned childcare providers in Oak Park, where she currently lives. But her childcare center’s selling point isn’t that it’s black-owned, Hicks said. “We have a mixed community of all races here — Asian, African-American, Caucasian,” Hicks said during an interview on July 7, as she and at least 100 other people, including many of her clients, celebrated the center’s 20th year in business (a bounce house was setup in the facility’s parking lot). “It’s a nice melting pot and I’m very proud to say that, even though we’re AfricanAmerican-owned, our program is based on quality, so we sell quality — not the fact that we’re African-American-owned,” she said. The center, Hicks explained, has a silver rating from ExceleRate Illinois, a prominent quality rating system for childcare providers. Hicks is also a member of the Collaboration for Early Childhood Care and Education — a taxpayer-funded organization designed to spread early childhood care awareness and resources among residents in Oak Park and River Forest. Hicks added that her center services around 125 young people, ages 6 months

SHANEL ROMAIN

to 12 years old, in a variety of ways — a nursery, preschool, and before- and afterschool programs all take place in the center, which employs around 25 people, Hicks said (herself included). Throughout its 20 years, the center has weathered some storms, not the least of which is the state’s ongoing fiscal crisis, which has spelled doom and gloom for many early childhood providers. Hicks said that ABC has been largely inoculated from the state’s chaos due to sound budgeting and because the center doesn’t rely solely on state funding. She said that, despite the budget crunch, she hasn’t had to lay off anyone or cut anyone’s hours. The deeper reason for those two decades of salience, though, lies in the center’s moral foundation, which was laid by Hicks’ late mother-in-law, Lilla Hicks, Hicks said. “This started in the summer of 1998 and my mother-in-law founded it,” Hicks said. “Before this, she ran a home-based daycare for about 15 years in Oak Park. I’m very

honored to continue the legacy that was her vision initially.” Hicks said that her mother-in-law envisioned a center that operated not as a business, but as an extended family. “This is not transactional,” Hicks said. “We can’t do this without the families, who we consider our partners. We work together as a unit. Nurturing, loving and educating is our culture.” Joy Ward, the center’s director, said that the culture that Lilla incubated decades ago is why she’s been at ABC for 12 years now, starting as a teacher and working her way up to her current position. “I stayed because of the family environment that I felt when I came here,” Ward said during the Saturday festivities. “We work together and the focus is on the children. That’s very important.” For some of the center’s parents, that culture is a reason why they keep sending their children to ABC. Two years ago, Cheree Moore was laid off

from her job, prompting concerns about how she’d pay for her children’s daycare. “I was laid off for eight months and Ms. Bernie was flexible with us in terms of letting us bring our daughters during the day, because it was hard for me to look for a job,” Moore, said. “A lot of families need that extra support.” “I really trust them with my kids,” said Harris. The center’s village vibe even extends to the physical structure. The 15,000-squarefoot building, located at 411 South Blvd., was once home to Dorolyn Academy of Music — a venerable tenant in its own right — before ABC moved in last year. Prior to then, the daycare had operated out of two facilities on Harrison Street. Hicks commissioned the prominent Chicago artist Damon Lamar Reed to create murals on both the exterior and interior of the building, brightening up a space that had once been rather standard office fare. The interior, once dark and dated, has been reconfigured, softened and opened up to let in more natural light. The space extends from Hicks’ personality, said one of her longtime friends, Gwendolyn Young. “She’s one of those people who I think everyone should have in their lives,” Young said on Saturday. “She’s integral, she’s kind, she’s generous, she’s caring. She just has a calming spirit and a genuine love for your child — the whole child.” CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com

Dorothy Gaters inducted into Hall of Fame The Maywood resident and Marshall High coach is in multiple HOF By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

Dorothy Gaters, a Maywood resident, was recently inducted into the National Federation of State High School Associations Hall of Fame during a ceremony in Chicago on July 2, according to the Illinois High School Association. The veteran girls’ basketball coach at John Marshall High in Chicago and the winningest basketball coach in IHSA history was one of 12 people selected for the honor, “regarded as the highest achievable accolade in high school sports and activities,” IHSA officials said in a statement. “Dorothy Gaters is high school basketball in Illinois,” said IHSA Executive Director Craig Anderson in the satement. “That is something that I don’t say lightly when you take into consideration the history and tradition of high school basketball in this

state, and especially in the city of Chicago. There are plenty of legendary coaches and players, but none has done it as long or as successfully as Dorothy.” Gaters is the 28th person from IHSA to be honored in the NFHS National High School Hall of Fame and the ninth IHSA enshrinee to be inducted as a coach. “It is a great honor to be inducted into the NFHS Hall of Fame,” said Gaters in the statement. “It is recognizing the accomplishments of so many dedicated young ladies who have made it possible for me to be a recipient. Our families, city, school and community share this award.” Gaters has been coaching at Marshall, her alma mater, in 1975.

NEWS briefs Melrose Park man gets 18 years for selling fatal heroin A Melrose Park man has been sentenced to 18 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for his role in a fatal heroin overdose, according to a statement put out by DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin. Kevin Liszka, 34, of the 1400 block of N. 1st Ave., appeared in court for the sentencing on July 3. In March, a jury found Liszka guilty of one count of Drug Induced Homicide — a Class X felony punishable by six to thirty years in state prison. He was held on a $2 million bond in DuPace County Jail while awaiting his trial. According to Berlin, Marcus Penton, 26, of Naperville, died of a heroin overdose on Feb. 19, 2015. “An investigation into the death led authorities to a friend of Penton’s, Skyler Sabala as the source of the heroin,” Berlin stated. “Further investigation into the death revealed that Sabala purchased the fatal dose of heroin from Liszka. On October 4, 2016, Sabala entered an agreed plea of guilty to one count of Manufacture or Delivery of a Controlled Substance, a Class 2 Felony, and was sentenced to seven years in the IDOC.” Berlin said that the case “is yet another very sad reminder that we as a society are still facing a very dangerous and deadly opioid crisis. To date this year, DuPage County has suffered thirty-one overdose deaths.” Liszka must serve 75 percent of his prison sentence before being he’s eligible for parole, which means that he likely won’t be released before 2031.

to get an oncoming train to stop, which it eventually did. As of 3 p.m., according to the dispatch, three suspects were still at large. Police in Bellwood and Melrose Park, along with Union Pacific officials, could not be reached last Thursday evening for comment.

Krispy Kreme coming to Hillside in September A Krispy Kreme Doughnut store is coming to Proviso Township. On July 2, the village of Hillside broke ground on a Krispy Kreme that will be located at 110 S. Mannheim Road. According to the village’s newsletter, the Hillside Herald, Uber will provide retail delivery from the store. “We are extremely happy to have Krispy Kreme join the family of businesses within our Village,” stated Hillside Mayor

Joseph Tamburino in the newsletter. “This outstanding company will be an asset to our town, and we wish to welcome them to our business community.” According to a notification on the burgeoning store’s Facebook page, the Hillside Krispy Kreme is scheduled to open in late September. The Hillside store marks the first phase of Krispy Kreme’s reemergence in the Chicago area. In June 2015, the company first announced its plans to come back here since the recession 10 years ago forced it to close many stores after period of

rapid expansion that started in 2000. A 2016 Chicago Tribune report noted that Chicagoland Restaurants LLC is the franchisee behind the company’s new Chicago-area locations. At the time, the Tribune reported that suburban “areas are more ideal for Krispy Kreme’s ‘factory stores,’ those that produce the doughnuts on the assembly line visible to customers. Those shops will then serve as the base to supply the eight stores and possibly some other retail outlets that will sell Krispy Kreme doughnuts again.”

Union Pacific train stopped during July 5 police chase At least three suspects wanted for an alleged armed robbery of cell phones on July 5 led area police on a chase that resulted in a train on the Union Pacific line coming to an unanticipated stop. The incident happened just after 2:30 p.m. According to emergency dispatch records, police officers from multiple suburbs in Proviso Township, including Berkeley, Bellwood and Melrose Park, started chasing a 2005 Chevy Impala that was coming from a reported armed robbery that happened somewhere on North Avenue. The stolen cell phones had tracking devices that revealed the location of the Impala, records show. The suspects eventually led police into the Union Pacific rail yard, underneath the 25th Avenue overpass, where one suspect — a male black with a beard and no shirt on at the time of the chase — exited the vehicle and jumped into a nearby creek. Another suspect was driving the car on the tracks while authorities were trying

Percy Julian, famed chemist and former Maywoodian, gets mural in his honor A mural dedicated to Percy Julian, a pioneering African-American research chemist and businessman, is three weeks from completion. It’s going up on the northwest side of the Oak Park middle school that bears his name. Julian lived in Maywood before moving to Oak Park, where he lived and operated a laboratory. When he moved to the village in around 1950, his family was one of the first black families to set down roots in Oak Park. Before moving in, though, the Julians’ home was famously fire-bombed twice. The chemist, armed with a shotgun, and his son kept watch over their home, sometimes from a nearby tree. The prominent muralist and educator Tracy Van Duinen facilitated the installation of the mural, along with local students and participants in a summer camp provided by the Oak Park Education Foundation. The mural, which rises to tree-like heights, takes the form of a molecular structure and incorporates features of Julian’s research, such as his groundbreaking synthesis of the soybean molecule. Van Duinen said the scientific theme anchored the artwork, which also riffs on themes found throughout the chemist’s personal life and work — his persistence despite having his home attacked and his ability to employ other black scientists through his lab, among other things.
