A familiar sign along the Kennedy Expressway gets a face-lift. Participants in the Chicago Marathon are depicted on murals painted on the side of a building just south of Armitage. No, Bank of America, which owns the space, is commissioning a painting to support Chicago's Olympic bid.

Artists are already at work. They are expected to complete the new mural by the end of March.

A site evaluation team for the International Olympic Committee will visit soon after the mural is completed.
