A new program created by the Chicago Loop Alliance will take Windy City residents on a free outdoor exhibition of downtown mural art. 

The Loop Mural Walk, which includes 21 murals along three routes totaling 2.1 miles, showcases work by both prominent and emerging artists and is slated to run through July 4. Participants have the choice of following turn-by-turn directions on their smartphones or creating their own journey.

Participants who share their experience online with the hashtag #LoopMuralWalk will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 gift card to The Dearborn.

“As more Chicagoans receive their COVID-19 vaccinations, and now that we’re enjoying consistent warm weather, we know our neighbors are itching to experience an iconic Chicago summer downtown," Chicago Loop Alliance President and CEO Michael Edwards said in an organization news release. "We think this new activity should be on everyone’s list.”
