Murals of Logan Square

You can find some great street art in Chicago . . . some commissioned, some not. For several years while taking the Blue Line downtown from my stop at California, a few moments after the train had started up again, I would look down from the elevated tracks and see the huge ferrets.

They are painted on the back side of a long, 1-story brick building. The words “It’s not where you’r from it’s where you’r at” (sic) wrap the back and side of the top edge of the walls. Finally, during a temperate day last week, I searched for the alley/lot that contained this building so that I could get a closer look. After walking around Milwaukee Ave. and up and down some side streets, I was able to get to the parking lot that is between this building and a defunct thrift store. Brief, internet research identifies the artist as ROA from Belgium.
