Creepy Doll Faces Mysteriously Popping Up in Chicago

Chicago street art may have just gotten a lot creepier – and just in time for Halloween.

Area residents have been reporting decapitated doll heads popping up on structures around the city, particularly in the West Town neighborhood.

Andrea Cordts said she spotted the frightening sight just outside Fetch Public Relations on West Augusta Boulevard near the Kennedy Expressway.

“Yup, there are pink doll faces tacked up all around the neighborhood,” she wrote. “At least it’s adding a splash of color?”

Cordts also said she saw the same heads appear on the inbound Kennedy just before the Armitage exit.

And Cordts isn't alone.

Other social media users have posted photos of the headless dolls in the city, many calling it street art.

“Strange #dollheads #dollfaces popping up under train tracks in West Town #Chicago,” user Rafeweigel posted.

Another sighting was reported on the Ashland bridge near Webster and the corner of Carpenter and Lake Street.

The heads appear similar to ones that took over Denver in 2015 and into last year.

Artists told a local station at the time they knew the man behind those faces but would not reveal his identity.

It remains unclear who might be behind the heads now popping up in Chicago.
