Wabash Arts Corridor Tours Return Summer 2019
Kicking off on June 15 and continuing through fall, the Wabash Arts Corridor is offering 90-minute tours of the WAC murals, led by professional, trained tour guides and public art enthusiasts.
About the tour:
Wabash Arts Corridor is the South Loop’s vibrant public arts program, known for murals, installations and happenings that transform the urban landscape. This tour is designed for locals and tourists alike, and for anyone who enjoys exploring art in urban areas. The tour will feature some of WAC’s most famous towering murals as well as hidden gems tucked away in alleys, revealing behind the scenes stories about how some of the most iconic murals came to be. The tour will introduce how Columbia College Chicago initiated the project, in partnership with the City of Chicago and hundreds of community members, neighborhood associations and businesses. Audiences will get immersed in this creative art scene and learn about the local, national and international artists who have helped grow this public art program into one of the largest urban collections in just 5 years.
