Welcome to Manteno, IL!

We are launching an Instagram campaign called #PictureManteno to be able to showcase our beautiful murals and parks from YOUR perspective.

How does it work? Simply take photographs in one or all of the locations provided and hashtag #PictureManteno for a chance to be featured on the Village of Manteno's Instagram. The goal of this campaign is for everyone to have fun and enjoy capturing the unique spots in the town that we all call home.


Location #1: Perspective is located in the alley of 47 W. Second.

Through the use of lines, shapes, and vibrant colors, this mural was created to represent our town from a unique viewpoint. Although the piece is formally abstract, there is a language to the composition that engages participation and investigation. Community members were invited to take part in the painting, and added a dot where they live in hopes to promote the idea of connection and closeness between us. This art piece serves as a reminder that we can understand each other better if we take time to see things from different perspectives.

Greetings from Manteno

Location #4: Greetings from Manteno is located at 51 W 1st St.


Location #5: Metamorphosis is located at 91 N. Main St.


Through symbolism and artistic expression, we sought to create a mural that shows Manteno growing and changing over time. The cocoon and butterfly, along with the numbers, hands, and gears of a clock, represent time and transformation. The Manteno community has striven to be a progressive town through its beautiful parks and downtown area, new businesses, and exciting community events. All of these changes create a "Metamorphosis", taking the town from what it once was in the past into the new place it is becoming. -MHS Advanced Art Class of 2015
