Join Biketropolis and traverse the city by bicycle on this tour highlighting Chicago's public murals, graffiti walls and other street art.

About this Event

Key points of interest include mural walls in the Pilsen and Fulton Market neighborhoods and at the Crawford Steel Company, as well as many hard-to-find art installations in between. Our route will include a visit with the artist OBEONE at the Crawford Steel Wall, where artists from all over the world participated in the three-day Meeting of Styles. We'll also meet up with Caesar Perez (Ava Grey Designs), who was recently commissioned by the Shedd Aquarium, at one of his murals. Capping off our tour will be an opportunity to witness an organized graffiti competition at the Battle of the Eagle with our friend Flash (Artistic Bombing Crew & Classic Cruisers), curator of Project Logan.
