Celebrating the popularity of street art in Chicago, ACME Hotel Company decided to launch its first-ever Street Art Tour. ACME Hotel Company's creation of this street art tour is also an expression of their steady commitment to creative expression. The Chicago mural tour began this summer, and is continuing on strong this season.
ACME Hotel's Street Art Tour At a Glance
ACME Hotel will schedule a private Flash Cab for the hotel guests that will take them on an exclusive two-hour tour. The street art tour can be taken any time between 9:30AM and 2:30PM, all 7 days each week.
Besides the chance to see popular street art murals in the heart of downtown Chicago, guests will have the opportunity to see 9 of the city's most talked about displays in far-reaching neighborhoods many tourists wouldn't necessarily know to look.
Some featured spots on ACME Hotel's street art tour:
- Pilsen Murals
- Wabash Arts Corridor in the Loop
- South Loop
There's a detailed tour map of street art stops and included neighborhoods. ACME hotel will provide everyone on the tour with a map to follow along during the tour.
Each piece is unique and the street art tour features a variety of styles from different artists around the globe. Pieces stand out with vibrant colors and mixed media spanning many artistic disciplines (graphic design, photography, etc.).
As the tour is private and of a considerable length, guests have time to get out of the Flash Cab and examine street art murals more closely. Each piece makes for a thoughtful and beautiful backdrop to a Chicago selfie to share with friends! But it's OK to also just take in the piece and try to understand the artist's thought process.
