Yay for Murals!

Summer—otherwise known as mural season—is almost upon us, and thus standout projects are beginning to crash our shores. Here's one, delivered by tipster, that's set to liven up a daunting viaduct underpass at Addison & Avondale. The underpass is a gateway to the Avondale neighborhood when arriving from the Addison Blue Line station and deserves to be treated as such, argues the project's initiator Joanie Friedman. Illustrator/muralist Rafael Lopez has already sketched out the design which emphasizes cross-cultural pollination in Avondale and the city as a whole. The project is working to enlist youth and adult volunteers as well as financial support for its June kick-off. Check out the video clip for more! [YouTube, image via mural Facebook page]
