CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- From now through Aug. 11, 51 lighthouses are on display on Michigan Avenue: a project of the Chicago Lighthouse to draw attention to the needs of people with disabilities.

Many of the artists who have made artwork out of 6-foot lighthouses have disabilities.

Hamza Muhammad, 28, who also goes by the name In-Zo, said he has anxiety disorder and ADHD.

"Everybody has their own form of disability.  But I just use it in my own certain way as a superpower," he said.

Muhammad's lighthouse, like 50 others, are part of this summer's public art display: "Lighthouses on the Mag Mile" - coordinated by the Chicago Lighthouse, which serves the blind and visually impaired.
