Recently, a group of KEPHARTians took the opportunity to tour our neighborhood to check out the incredible street art in RiNo (River North Neighborhood). RiNo remains an enclave of artists and art studios, as evidenced by strong participation in the RiNo Art District – check it out at rinoartdistrict.org. The artistic soul of this community has long spilled out on to the streets, where street art is prevalent. The organic growth of street art here has been supplemented for several years by a more structured endeavor, Crush Walls. Crush Walls is an annual event dating back to 2010, which gained strong momentum in 2016 when it first joined the RiNo Art District. Crush Walls supplements the impromptu work of local artists with an event featuring murals created by nationally recognized artists – check out Crush Walls at crushwalls.org. If you haven’t spent time admiring the amazing art in our neighborhood recently, be sure to do so next time you’re down here for a meeting at KEPHART. Or, if you are down here checking out the art, be sure to swing by our office to say hello. Here are a few of our favorite pieces to keep an eye open for as you take it all in. Which one is your favorite?
