The City of Chicago, recognizing the importance hand painted murals play throughout our city, released a resource guide to murals recently (April 2019). This guide is to help all those considering painting an exterior mural on the proper steps and considerations before painting a mural.
Right Way Signs of Chicago are experts on painting exterior mural and signs and can assist anyone interested in having a mural painted through the process which includes making sure the right paint is selected, proper weather conditions for painting, working with City of Chicago officials and residents, etc.

An ordnance was recently passed allowing acknowledgement for a sponsor on the mural, with the logo not exceeding 2 sq/ft.Back To News
