Thanks for all the love and support on this one! It was great to see everyone come out to snap photos in front of the latest Greetings From… mural. Huge thanks to Galerie F and Amuse126 who helped setup this wall for us. We quickly learned how crazy and extreme the Chicago weather can get as we worked odd hours overnight to get this mural done to avoid the rain and wind. We slept in the lot next to the mural to guard the scaffolding all week and really got a sense of the neighborhood from all the characters who would pass by and chat with us.
We now understand why all the apartments next to the train lines had special soundproofing in them. The sound of the blue line trains passing by as we tried to sleep under it sounded like an airplane! Needless to say, we didn’t get the best sleep when we were parked in the lot.
Fox32 Local News randomly stopped by the last day we were painting. We are not sure if any of this actually aired but if anyone caught it, please let us know!
