Vacant businesses don’t look so barren any more along a stretch of South Eola Road in Aurora.
Volunteers gathered at businesses along South Eola Road to kick off the Far South Eola Art Project last weekend.
The works of little artists from Homestead, The Wheatlands, and Wolf’s Crossing elementary schools in the Oswego School District will hang in empty storefront windows on an on-going basis to beautify empty space and increase foot traffic.
The businesses benefiting from the artwork are along three blocks, from 2200 to 2500 South Eola Road.
