Mural Walking Tour
A group exploration of the murals of Milwaukee Avenue
- October 27
- 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM
It's autumn in Chicago and that means warm cidar, watching the leaves change color, and mural season. Our city is a rich tapestry of street art waiting to be enjoyed.
Join us for a stroll down Milwaukee Avenue with your neighborhood tour guide, Michael Vaughn Green, to look at some classics and fresh faces. Expect the route to be about a mile long.
After the mural walk we'll post up at a nearby patio for a couple drinks and casual chatter. Please join us there if you're comfortable and interested.
