47th and Lake park, north side of Metra Underpass
Each of the murals along this impressive wall represent
a different artist's spiritual quest. The styles are varied, from
figurative like the meditative monk by Desie, a founder of Higher
Gliffs, to the simple portrayal of geometrical shapes two panels
east of it.
Higher Gliffs is a group that has organized the painting of major
murals not only in Chicago but throughout the country and even
in Europe and South America. Those across the underpass are also
by Higher Gliffs, as is the impressive Tribute to Harold Washington
at 57th and Harper.
