Fall is almost upon us, and with the onset of cooler weather comes relaxing strolls along the Chicago Riverwalk and the launch of a one-of-a-kind art installation that will have the city – and the world – talking. Why? Because it’s going down in history as the world’s largest digital art projection.
The highly anticipated Art on theMART installation, privately funded by theMART owner Vornado Realty Trust, will give those enjoying the 1.25-mile Chicago Riverwalk the most Instagram-worthy sight imaginable. The installation will use 34 projectors to illuminate the 2.5-acre river-facing side of the building – that’s the equivalent of two football fields, by the way.
It all kicks off on September 29, and will be displayed for up to two hours a day, five days a week.
