C.T. Vivian Mural


In recognition of one of Macomb’s greatest sons, the Macomb Area Convention & Visitors Bureau has partnered with C.T. Vivian Project Foundation of Macomb founder and director Byron Oden-Shabazz and artist and former WIU Art Professor Michael Mahoney.

The work, which will be displayed on the northern wall of the 135 N Randolph building, depicts Dr. Vivian late in life looking over the course of his storied lifetime from a young man graduating from Macomb High School and Western Illinois University through his varied experiences as a Reverend and leading activist in The Civil Rights Movement working shoulder to shoulder with Rev. Martin Luther King and life long friend Rep. John Lewis to receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Barrack Obama. At 18 feet high and nearly 75 feet long, Rev. C. T. Vivian: Life of a Servant Leader will be McDonough County’s largest mural.
