south loop street art chicago
As I mentioned in my last post, I headed downtown to the Art Institute of Chicago to check out a couple exhibitions. To get there, I took the ‘L’, something I don’t do nearly as often as I used to. Much to my surprise, I ended up on the Orange line at Paulina…odd given only the Brown line typically stops here. Apparently during rush hour the Orange line is on the northside as well…who knew?!  Well, probably many people since my husband was quick to point it out.
Anyway, I didn’t realize I was on the Orange line until the train operator announced the next stop after the Harold Washington Library was Roosevelt. I was taken aback and was not registering what was going on so I didn’t get off the train. Oh well, as fate would have it, the ‘L’ passed by a lot of the amazing street art that has been covering the sides of many south loop buildings. I had forgotten about this, and since I was downtown too early to get into the Art Institute, this was the perfect detour, and walking tour, back north to the museum.
I’m sure I only scratched the surface of exploring the city’s street art, but below you’ll see some pics of the work done by these truly talented artists.

There are a few more images here, and hopefully I’ll be adding more as I explore other areas of the city and the amazing street art these artists are creating.
