Jeff Zimmermann, Artist
A graduate of Chicago's St. Ignatius College Prep and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, artist Jeff Zimmermann is known for his enormous, outdoor murals which create beautiful, public art in blighted areas, discussion among the community and mainstream media coverage. Zimmermann revels in working on scaffolding, stories above the street, watching as the public stops to ponder what he's creating way up there.
Just a few of his iconic, outdoor enormous scale works include The Mural Building for the Chicago Marathon & Lake Shore Drive at Oak Street Beach. Zimmermann has produced commissioned works for 1871 Chicago, LinkedIn, Nike, Whole Foods, restaurant designers and the City of Chicago. He has been the featured artist at the Museum of Contemporary Art and has been profiled in the NY Times, The Today Show, NPR, ABC Chicago and many more mainstream media outlets.
Zimmermann's public art creates a "vanity address" for the city. The building becomes a landmark. "Our office is downtown, by the mural."
