Address: 1852 W. 22nd Pl. // Artists: Juan Angel Chavez, Jeff Zimmermann, and Cynthia Weiss, 2002-04

Cristo Rey Jesuit High School showcases exceptional religious mosaics designed by a trio of prominent Chicago artists in the early 2000s in a collaborative process with the student body. There are four individual mosaics adorning the school, the largest and most intricate of which is at the northwest corner of the classroom building at Cermak Road and Wolcott Avenue. It resembles a colorful quilt depicting the fabric of life at Cristo Rey, student community and achievement, and the local Pilsen streetscape with Our Lady of Guadalupe blessing the students from the upper right-hand corner. Three mosaics on the West 22nd Place side of the school illustrate the story of the Jesuit faith worldwide and in Pilsen through various symbols and narrative imagery.

As you explore Chicago during OHC, please wear a face covering, maintain at least six feet of distance from others and do not attempt to enter any buildings.
