Swimming Along by Stevo Sadvary

This mural is tucked away in a passageway at the South Side Works. We initially had a difficult time finding it. Between the parking garage on 28th St and the shops on 27th St there's a walkway with a small courtyard and fountain. A covered passageway connects to 27th St and that's where you'll find Swimming Along.

The developer of this shopping complex loved mosaics and wanted something to enhance this passageway. The artist looked at it and wanted to show something that had movement, enchantment, and would tie in to the water feature of that fountain.

He accomplished this by staggering four mosaic scenes of colorful fish swimming along on either side of the covered passage.
