New year, new Wall Crawl! And I think it’s safe to say that we’ve recruited the OG *QUEEN* of colorful walls to be our Chicago Wall Crawl Correspondent…. Rosie Clayton, AKA @rclayton! If you aren’t following her, you NEED to be! Rosie was one of the very first people I asked when we started our Wall Crawl series, as I’m pretty sure she has secret wall radar. Everywhere she goes she finds the BEST ones. Lucky for us, she’s sharing her knowledge on the best walls in Chicago today! Putting this post together made me want to RUN to Chicago to check these out in real life!!! Check ’em out (plus download Kate’s Chicago wall map, too)!
