LAKEVIEW — Move over Running Blago, there's new stencil art hitting Chicago viaducts and overpasses.
Someone has been spray-painting images of a triumphant Blackhawks player hoisting the Stanley Cup over his head on overpasses and viaducts around Chicago.
They've been spotted on the Western Avenue bridge over Belmont Avenue, on the viaduct at Lincoln Avenue and Addison Street and at Montrose Avenue and the lakefront.
The images are reminiscent of the stenciled paintings of a running suit-clad Rod Blagojevich, jogging and looking nervous, that popped up around town several years ago.
No one appears to have claimed responsibility for the urban art.
Department of Streets and Sanitation spokeswoman Anne Sheahan said the city hasn't received notices about this graffiti specifically, as far as she knows. But no matter how artsy, it would have to go.
"Any graffiti on public property is considered vandalism and would be removed," Sheahan said.
Randi Russo, a local artist, wasn't raving about what she saw Thursday.
"I like stencils, but I don't care for that one," Russo said. "Out of all the sports, I hate hockey the most."
