Artists of Hubbard Street Mural Project

The Hubbard Street Murals, on Hubbard between Ogden and DesPlaines in Chicago, were originally painted during the 1970's. A few years ago, Union Pacific Railroad began repairing and replacing the concrete train embankment, affecting the artwork in the process. Here's where the Artists of Hubbard Street Mural Project come into the picture. The organization began seeking interested individuals and groups to restore panels and bring new artwork to the refurbished embankment. With support from Union Pacific Railroad, the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and the Illinois Arts Council, the mural project thrives today. The new murals maintain some of the original themes: wildlife, endangered species, ethnicity, and Chicago history.
