What's Better Than Graffiti? A Mural!

Remember last March when I wrote about the graffiti on the Oak Street underpass? (photo at left) Well, look what's happening now! (right) These pictures were taken last week - it's even further along now.
Chicago artist Jeff Zimmerman's work is part of a campaign to raise awareness of beach health and water quality issues, i.e. not feeding the birds or littering, another of my pet peeves.

And for all you negative people grumbling about your tax dollars, don't worry, it's funded by a grant. Now can you get on board?
BTW, I wrote the original post on March 17th about how awful it looked under there and within two weeks the graffiti was gone, and I'm taking credit!
