CBCAC along with other community groups including the Chinese American Museum of Chicago, Chinatown Chamber of Commerce, Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association, Chinese American Association of Greater Chicago and Chinese American Service League, celebrated the official dedication of the Centennial Mural at the Chinatown Library at 1 PM on Jan 23, 2016. It was attended by 100 people, including distinguished guests of State Representative Edward Acevedo and the 2nd District State Representative candidates for 2016, Alex Acevedo and Theresa Mah. A ribbon-cutting ceremony followed at the site. Please visit the centennial mural at its site on Archer and Clark/Wentworth. The north side of the wall represents the past 100 years and the south side of the wall represents the future and its next 100 years. We thank State Representative Edward Acevedo, Alderman Daniel Solis, summer ASM youth, and the membership committee for their contributions to making the mural a site for conversation and placemaking in Chinatown.
