When people congregate on Martin Avenue in Homewood for the Holiday Lights Festival on Friday, the storefront windows will help set the mood, thanks to the weekend work of two Homewood-Flossmoor High School artists.

Nina Harris and Lucy Sloan, both seniors, were enlisted by the village to paint winter scenes on the south side storefront windows of the Triumph Building at 2033 Ridge . . .
