Alternatives, Inc.

This is part of a beautiful and exuberant mosaic mural that spans the entire building's face of Alternatives, Inc. on 4730 N. Sheridan Road. Alternatives is a youth and family agency serving the city's north side. Their programs include counseling, career and employment skills training, summer and after school activities, as well as varied art and cultural activities. (Read more on them here.)


  1. It's a wonderful mural, full of colour and depicting energy and joy. Great find!

  2. The mural is striking (in a few years kids will point at the monitor and keyboard and ask "What's that?!" LOL).

    What a great service Alternatives provides.

    (Hubby is glued to the TV... White Sox vs Red Sox at Wrigley Field.)

  3. I don't know where this is but it is very pretty. I will look the next time I am on Sheridan road!

  4. Exuberant is right! And what a great agency, I'm sure they much in demand in the neighborhood.

  5. The building's new owners are about to destroy the mural.
