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.
The Square on Second Fountain
Location #2: This fountain is located at the Square on Second.
Location #3: Peace USA is located in the Second St. Alley south of Sammy's Pizza. (155 ½ N. Main St)
