Chicago Walls: RTD, DC5 and friends off of the Kennedy
Just north of downtown Chicago stands a wall that is visible from one of the city’s main arteries. The John F. Kennedy Expressway (a.k.a. I 90/94) is the fastest route between the downtown area, Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, and dozens of neighborhoods in between. The Kennedy is home to a lot of graffiti since it’s not only an expressway, but the route of the CTA’s (Chicago Transit Authority) O’Hare Blue Line.
Although you can’t see this particular wall from the Blue Line, because by this point the transit trains go underground, everyday thousands of drivers that commute through here are able to see it and the work of artists Awol, Dwarf, Awer, Greve, Amuse126, Woes and Fove.
So if you’re ever in The Windy City make sure to keep your eyes open along the Kennedy and look for this and the many other walls, billboards and freights that have been provided compliments of some of the city’s top artists, for your viewing pleasure.
