Chicago is home to the world’s largest digital art, a permanent projection-mapped installation that shines nightly onto a building after traveling from a projection booth across the Chicago River. It’s called Art on theMart and offers a unique take on the role of public art in a city. The animated projection is continuously redefining the building and the space it’s a part of. This video explores how this project works and dives into the meaning and history behind the daring project. It’s all part of a much larger initiative to make Chicago and its river a vibrant and ever-changing destination for locals and tourists alike.
