Art Hits the Wall
To celebrate the beauty and power of diversity, we’ve paired two of the Quincy community’s greatest passions: art + food. The 10-mile route showcases broad sections of the city, and the street art illustrated is as varied as the artists and residents themselves. The course winds through the 6th Street Promenade & the Riverfront, the German Historic District, The District & North End, through the Illinois Veterans’ Home and past the Monckton Mansion. Some of the works are “ghost” murals, weathered by the elements and years, still offering intriguing glimpses of the businesses and families they once represented. Others are new pieces borne of the revitalization initiatives of the city’s residents and arts organizations, enlivening the heart of Quincy–The District.
