In Chicago’s South Loop is a collection of murals by some of the world’s most famous and influential street artists. The Wabash Arts Corridor was started in 2013 by Columbia College Chicago, a college specializing in art and media disciplines. The Wabash Arts Corridor was the school’s way of taking art from inside its buildings and creating an immersive art experience.
The WAC received a boost in 2014 when the school teamed up with Shepard Fairey as part of his “The Provocateurs” exhibition with Lollapalooza. During the exhibition, large murals by Fairey, Retna, Cleon Peterson, and POSE were created.
