One of the Best Street Art Corners in Chicago

I went to Chicago this weekend, visiting friends and family I hadn’t seen for a year. I had a wonderful time catching up over delicious meals and drinks, especially as the weather gradually warmed up to proper August temperatures. I didn’t have much time on my own, but Thursday afternoon I went back to my old neighborhood, and I finally took some pictures of an art studio I’d seen from the el but never found on the ground before. Here are some shots of the great paintings I found there.
