The Chicago Sun-Times has embarked on a project to capture, catalog and celebrate public art in the city and suburbs.

As part of that, we’ve created an interactive map with a selection of murals and mosaics in the region — a map that we’ll be adding to each week. 

Each point on the map is clickable, with a photo, description and sometimes a link to a story about the mural. You can zoom in to focus on a particular neighborhood or suburb.

Tell us where it is, and send a photo. We might do a story on it.
