The wonderful Hopscotch City and I have teamed up for a mural scavenger hunt around Chicago!
We have 30 themes to choose from as you drive or walk around Chicagoland!
Think of this as a way to explore the different neighborhoods around Chicago, familiarize yourself with different cultures, and get to know new local artists!
We would love for you to tag us in your adventures and use the hashtag, #muralhopchicago. Our instagram accounts are @whatshouldwedotodaychicago & @hopscotchcity
If possible, it’s important to give credit to the artist as well!
