What is Art on the Mart
Art on the MART will be a first-of-its-kind, curated digital art installation across 2.5 acres (two football fields) of the MART’s river façade, adding to Chicago’s vibrant public art scene. The large-scale public launch event will reveal four contemporary, digital artworks using 34 projectors to illuminate the river façade of the MART.
Where to enter The Riverwalk
The Riverwalk is accessible via any of the stairways along Wacker Dr. There are ADA compliant ramps providing Riverwalk access located at the east side of State St., the west side of Clark St., and the west side of Franklin St.
Five artists will present unique digital works at the launch with filler content by Obscura Digital.
Following the launch event, the projections will be displayed up to two hours a night, five days a week (Wednesday – Sunday), for ten months of the year (March – December). Projections will be visible to the public from Wacker Dr. and along the Chicago Riverwalk. The City of Chicago and theMART will work in partnership to manage and curate the projected artwork over a 30-year agreement.
