Walking Tour | Hyde Park Viaduct Murals

Sunday, October 16

Join teaching artist Juarez Hawkins for a lively historical tour of the murals along the Metra underpasses linking Hyde Park Boulevard and Cornell Avenue in Hyde Park, one of the city’s most engaging neighborhoods. Take a close look at public art that tells distinctive stories about Chicago and its history, including Astrid Fuller’s Spirit of Hyde Park (1973) and William Walker’s Children of Goodwill (1977). We’ll also touch on the issues surrounding content, restoration, and reinterpretation.

Tour runs 1.5 to 2 hours. 

Masks are optional for our outdoor walking tours. Learn more about our COVID-19 safety policies and procedures.
