There are plenty of great places to see public art in Chicago, from the Picasso sculpture in Daley Plaza downtown to the colorful murals of neighborhoods like West Town and Pilsen. The Wabash Arts Corridor, founded in 2013, is a newer addition to the city’s street art scene, but the Columbia College Chicago initiative has transformed drab walls and doors of Wabash Avenue in the South Loop — from roughly Ida B. Wells Drive south to 16th Street — into a remarkable exhibit of dazzling murals. On Ida B. Wells Drive, you’ll see a 53-foot-wide mural from local artist Diosa, a.k.a. Jasmina Cazacu, honoring 10 iconic Chicago suffragists, including Wells, Jane Addams, and Frances Willard. Farther south, you’ll find Columbia alum Heidi Unkefer’s delightful Slime Mountain, which depicts, yes, a personified mountain erupting with slime. Sure, the Art Institute is mere steps away, but unlike the collection on Wabash Avenue, you’ll have to pay — and you’ll find nothing quite like Slime Mountain there, either.
