Controversial Englewood Crosses Could Go On Tour After Meeting


ENGLEWOOD — A private meeting has been set between the artist who erected a controversial memorial for the city’s gun victims in an Englewood lot and the leader of a group that has opposed the display.

Asiaha Butler, president of the Resident Association of Greater Englewood organization, said she spoke with Greg Zanis on Monday and agreed to meet with him Feb. 21 in an effort to reach common ground. Butler said she will work on setting up a larger community meeting with the artist in Englewood after their discussion.
