Now this is what I call street art! Immediately recognizable, littered throughout Chicago's Logan Square Neighborhood are pieces of Monopoly Street Art. From the Plywood Community and Chance Cards to the Sidewalk Properties themselves, each one is a great take on the classic board game that is nostalgic to many. To add to the air of mystery, the artist(s) responsible known as Bored chooses to remain anonymous. Saying specifically  

“the goal of this entire project has been to present something different than a stencil painted on the ground or a poster pasted to a wall. Something 3-dimensional that can be picked up, beaten down, kicked, yanked, grabbed, and broken. And if someone ever put forth the effort to remove it, like a weed it will always grow back. And if left alone it will evolve into something different.”  

Whatever their reasons I hope they continue this awesome project. Let's see if they do the railroads and utilities next ;)

This is one of the coolest things I have seen in a while. This artist has taken something that we all would recognize, and put it out there in a new awesome way. So Creative!
 
"Street Art" my ass.
Nothing more than a bunch of jack asses vandalizing a neighborhood.
 
Wow. Can you believe this was done to get someone to say "yes" to a marrage proposal? That's awesome.
 
+Chad Pratt, sorry you don't like it. Also sorry to see you so eloquently represent the angry white American male.  
 
Where are the green and yellow ones?
 
+Chad Pratt  Vandalism is an action involving deliberate destruction of or damage to public or private property. I doubt anybody sees this as destruction or damage. I'd bet people in the neighborhood are delighted to have it there.
 
Chad, It is vandalizing but it is cool so over all it isn't a good thing. 
 
Wow Logan Square is 15 min by car from where I live. Might check it out if is not scorching hot tomorrow.
 
If it adds value to the neighborhood, it is creation not destruction, therefore it is not vandalism.  It may not add value to your personal suburban hell, but it is positive for this neighborhood.  Angry White American Male With Sunglasses is just posturing as programmed by the interaction of mass media with his insecurities.
 
Very creative. I bet someone out there feels better after looking at those.
 
former law enforcer? real estate investor?

confirmed for Angry White Male. is not amused by fun and games.
 
This is what I love about Google Plus.  I live in Chicago and I find out about this fun Art from someone on the East Coast! 
 
someone should make on big board in central park or anywhere 
 
Cool... but someone is going to trip over those houses hard.

Americans are easily amused.
 
Better to be easily amused than quick to anger ;)
 
The 'go to jail for public douchebaggery' is my favorite
 
Do you collect $200 for passing Go? Love it great idea, wish they did something similar here.
 
Granted the Internet, at times, is a source of aggravation, but I do enjoy seeing the many clever and creative people there are in the world.  This would not be possible without the Internet.  Anyway, wonderful and fantastic. Thank you to the Chicago Monopoly Street Art folks! Great stuff. 
 
Who is up for a giant game of monopoly? Lol
 
A giant game would be a great way to exercise, just let me get my giant top hat lol
 
That is sooo cool.... I want that in my house...
 
that looks fun i would do that COOL!!!!!!!!
 
I hope the artist puts the go to jail space by the police station
 
Grr! Why didn't I think of this! Lol
 
That is cool, but how many people will trip an fall on those houses? Specially at nigh.
