YPT-Chicago CTA Red Line South Public Art Tour

July 14, 2018

The addition of artwork at CTA stations and terminals not only promotes a friendly, inviting atmosphere, it also provides riders with a glimpse into the rich history and unique characteristics of the surrounding communities.

This event is free and open to the public but participants must register no later than Thursday July 12 at Noon in order to participate in this event.

When: Saturday July 14, 2018, 10:30 am sharp
