Hubbard St. Murals

I’ve been working in the meat packing district in the West Loop for the last couple months. In addition to the surplus of metra trains flying by, delivery trucks with their meats, and fish smell wafting through the air (along with the chocolate it’s a classic combination), there’s also some other interesting and notable characteristics of the neighborhood. One thing I love is there is a constant view of the sears (willis) tower and skyline, lurking in the distance. There’s also a lot of public art. There’s also a wall of murals on Hubbard Street I was not aware of before working in the neighborhood. It’s called the Hubbart Street Mural Project, and the picture above was taken on my regular walk into work. Some of the murals are faded and could use an update, according to the website a group got into that a couple years ago, not sure what came of it. But as you can see in the above photo, there are still some murals alive and well. Viva Chicago!
