My husband is an artist and was invited to paint a mural by the Library Street Collective, who hope to help boost the rejuvenation of the city through various art installations and projects. Working closely with the contractors who are redeveloping the buildings they want to create an art filled street with restaurants, street food and live events. The mural we worked on would be on this street.
We were delayed in Chicago, they lost our bags, and we arrived at the hotel very late with no clean clothes to change into. There were also issues with the computers meaning check-in took forever; we arrived in our room ten minutes after the end of room service and we were STARVING! Unsure of where to go for food and with everything nearby closed we know it was best not to talk and get to sleep to avoid any hunger-induced bickering :) We ordered a huge breakfast in the early hours of the morning to make up for it!
Join me for the next instalment for my thoughts on the art, restaurants and music in this fascinating city.
