Artists of the Wall
The Artists of the Wall Mural initially began as a response to gangs who would continually graffiti the 600-foot sea wall to the point where the Park District couldn’t keep up maintenance. Now in its 23rd year, this beloved painting event is truly a celebration of community, creativity and music for everyone to enjoy. Held each summer over Father’s Day weekend, neighbors of all ages come together to collaborate on the 600-foot mural at Loyola Park Beach between Farwell and Morse Avenues. The artists finished works remain until May of the following year when the wall is again prepped, whitewashed and readied for the next eager participants.
