The Mile of Murals is a community-based public art initiative in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago, located on the far north side of the city. The project began in 2007, and is sponsored by the Rogers Park Business Alliance and the Clark/Morse/Glenwood Special Service Area #24 (SSA #24). When completed in 2017, the project will showcase 19 large-scale murals: ten block-long walls, seven viaduct walls, and two overpasses; and will feature local, national, and internationally respected mural artists.

Hours: Hour-long tours on Saturday and Sunday start promptly at 10am and 1pm. Tours begin at the Heartland Cafe at 7000 North Glenwood Ave.
