 New Mural by
Arts Alive Chicago Artists and Volunteers
An Arts Alive Chicago mural at Addison and 90-94 (aka The Kennedy) in Chicago's 30th Ward

I met Alderman John Arena and Jill Arena here this past Sunday. 

A shout out to Cyd Smillie (Arts Alive Chicago), Athletic Field Advisory Council, Old Irving Park Association, Avondale Neighborhood Association and a host of talented artists and volunteers who made this happen! 


Whenyou see great art on the north/northwest side of Chicago, chances are Arts Alive Chicago played a major  role!    Check it out at http://www.artsalive45.com/
