After deciding to escape the city this past Labor Day holiday weekend, we now were faced with the difficult decision of where exactly would we be escaping to. My boyfriend did a quick google search of destinations within a day's drive from Chicago. He found a place neither of us had heard about before. After looking at about two pictures, we couldn't wait to get there.

postcard from the pilsen wall

I'm a sucker for street art. Thankfully, Chicago is littered with some great pieces. When I discovered a stretch of wall that runs along the 16th Street viaduct in the Chicago neighborhood of Pilsen via Instagram, I knew I had to pay a visit. The art on this wall is an initiative between the neighborhood and the Chicago Urban Art Society. It allows various street artists, many of whom are internationally known, to beautify the landscape. It is definitely worth the trek to Pilsen to see some really amazing work by some greatly talented artists.
