What is your favorite Chicago mural?

“There are so many it’s impossible to pick a favorite. Pilsen is definitely a great area for murals; however, my recent finds were in the Wicker Park/Bucktown area.” — Sher BonDurant, On Tap in the Windy City

“Any of the Hector Duarte murals in Pilsen. If you haven’t visited the mural ‘gallery’ there, it is totally worth a day visit.” — Ana Martin Sagredo, Foreign Affairs: Children Edition

“I grew up with the murals of Pilsen, but my favorite is a new one called Pajaro Cosmico by artist Remed in collaboration with a student program at the National Museum of Mexican Art. I love the bold colors and how the Universe is represented.” — Sophie Sanchez, Cosmic Chicago

“Check out the murals in the Pullman neighborhood, including paintings of laborers, industry, Pullman porters and Barack Obama. With its U.S. Landmark status, Pullman is a great place to study history.” — H. Van Howe, Pizza For Breakfast
