A trip down Chicago Ave

At the Corner of Chicago Ave & E 34th Street is some sort of school and across the street Southeast Asian Family Services. The side of their building has this mural in the edge of the Powderhorn Neighborhood.

Couldn't help but enjoy the contrast of real flowers and the fake painted butterfly.

Although it was a cloud day this sunburst still lit up the wall.

Drive down Chicago Ave one more block south and find Jakeeno's Pizza & Pasta (3555 Chicago Ave) with this lively mural on their side parking lot wall. The sign on the window said 4-6pm Happy Hour (take at happy hour prices???).

Now another note is that it appears to be thin crust pizza... yet its on Chicago Avenue? mmm

murals on bars...

This mural is spotted while driving past the back/side of the Cardinal Tavern (2920 E 38th St) in the Standish Neighborhood right near the 38th Street Light Rail station.

intermedia arts building

located at 2822 Lyndale Ave S Minneapolis Intermedia Arts is a " multidisciplinary center dedicated to engaging the power of the arts in addressing social and human issues" The outside of all sides of the building are covered in great ever-changing murals. From what I hear they are also the starting ground for many of the murals in the Lowery Hill East Neighborhood. Some amazing stuff to stop and view on a summers day.

I love the "rules of the game" (statement that this is art and that one should gain permission). Kill your Television.

Which wall do you like the best?
