"The Sky's the Limit" is a painted mural on the side of an 8-unit apartment building at 117 56th Street South in Woodlawn. It was painted in 2017 by Marcus Fetch of the Blank Space Mural Project.

The two-story tall spray-painted mural depicts a boy in a hot air balloon attempting to chase a butterfly. According to Fetch, the butterfly represents a "wild idea", the kind that adults might let pass but children will pursue. Fetch was assisted by Moses Pressnell and Thurston Hamby in executing the project over the course of two days.

Half of the $6,000 cost of the mural project was donated by building owners Pye Parson and Alexis McBrayer. The remainder was the object of a public fund-raising campaign hosted on The names of donors were incorporated into the clouds in the background of the composition.
