its sad to see how badly some of the works have faded, I hope this raises more awareness to their condition


This piece is on 18th and Racine painted by Aurelio Diaz

We were recently in touch with Gamaliel and let him know about the documentation of the murals in Pilsen . Here are images of the indoor murals at Juarez that were a collaboration among several artists.

The Daring of our Ancestors – Gamaliel Ramirez, Ray Patlan, Roberto Valadez, Hector Duarte, Jose Gonzalez, Aurelio Diaz

There are  two more panels but we were not able to go to Juarez and take a picture since its summer and school is now out

This image was sent to us by the Chicago Public Art Group from their slide archives.

This was one of the early murals done by Pros with children from the neighborhood.

We are very excited to be in communication with the artist responsible for this piece at Juarez High School. He has been posting comments and we hope to help support a repainting of this work.


This was a picture I thought was amazing.  I am interested in wierd things having a meaning behind them.  This caught my attention while I was at the Pink Line train stop on 18th.  I don’t like the way I took the picture though.  This and a couple of others are the only ones that look anywhere near mint condition.  However, to be honest this doesn’t look new to me but you be the judge!

The group will be out documenting some of the murals along the viaduct. We will upload pictures later today

For our project we are going to end up covering the Lower Westside which includes Pilsen and Heart of Chicago. This is an important distinction since we know a lot of people want to make it seem like Pilsen runs from the lake all the way to Cicero.

But it doesn’t!
