Walking Tour | Hyde Park Viaduct Murals

Sunday, July 25

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. 

Although the city of Chicago has moved into Phase 5 of its reopening plan and the CDC has updated guidance regarding mask mandates for fully vaccinated people, CHM will continue to require all visitors over age 2 and staff to wear a mask while participating in a group tour. As vaccinations continue, we will evaluate and update policies.
