Chico, del Valle, & Awesome Urban Art

Friday night's Mayoral Candidate Meet and Greet at 2229 S. Halsted was put on by Chicago Urban Art Society and Chicago's Creative Community was damn-near one-stop-shopping for Chicago's young, hip and thinking set. Mayoral candidates Gery Chico and Miguel de Valle came through and basically assumed the role of a groom at his wedding reception: an endless stream of 3 minute, cordial and engaging 1-on-1 interactions before moving on to the next one. Throw in some of Chicago's most challenging and visually arresting urban art as a backdrop and you have a good night.

My apologies to the artists I was unable to identify- I would love to give you credit for your work please contact me (, TRSlyder on Facebook, or @AndyDisco on Twitter) and I will put your name with your art in the photo gallery.
