Teenagers from two Chicago communities are creating a multi-cultural masterpiece on Chicago's North Side.

The kids are painting a mural on a new building for the Ethiopian Community Association of Chicago in the Rogers Park neighborhood. It was designed by Jewish student artists from Hillel's Arts in the Loop program.

Once complete, the mural will depict the histories, ethnicities and identities of the Jewish and Ethiopian communities.
