If you’ve ever traveled east on I-794 near the Historic Third Ward, chances are you’ve noticed the multi-story mural of a white-aproned woman with hard-working hands.
The 2019 mural graces the north side of the P.H. Dye House building and was commissioned by the property’s Chicago-based owner, Singerman Real Estate LLC, which purchased the eight-story building in 2018 for $9.7 million.
Painted by German artist Case Maclaim, the mural is meant to honor the women who once dyed stockings in the 100-year-old former factory as well as women who work in the Third Ward today.
The building is now home to Moda3, Train Moment and Solidcore on its first floor; offices on floors two through seven; and privately-owned residential condos on the top floor.
