The Life 3.0 Committee Presents: A Chicago Murals Tour

Sunday, September 18 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Members & Guests: $25. Lunch self-hosted. The day before the event, a confirmation email will be sent to registered attendees with details.

Chicago is home to some of the best artists in the world. But it’s not just Picasso and Calder. There are many artists who create right before our eyes, but we may never notice it. That’s where the Offbeat Street Art Tour comes in.

The Offbeat Street Art Tour is meant to elevate and celebrate Chicago’s street art scene which historically has lived in a grey area between being legal and illegal. Often celebrated and shunned in the same sentence, it can often be unclear which installations are commissioned, legal, or simply put up on a whim. Art can appear and disappear overnight, depending on which city departments are involved. The goal is to educate those who appreciate the overlooked, under-appreciated, or misunderstood secrets of our city.

Jan and Carol, members of the Life 3.0 Committee, took this tour in July and loved every moment. Our Offbeat Street Art Tour guide will share his in-depth knowledge of the social and cultural foundations as well as the artistic craft of these murals. We encourage you to have the same joyful experience, so come join us.

Our event will begin with at 12:00 with an optional self-hosted lunch at a Bucktown eatery or just join us at 1:00 for the leisurely 1.5 mile guided walk to view the murals.

Please RSVP by paying the $25 fee (which is used to pay the guide).
