“Art on theMART brings Chicago’s legacy of public art and iconic architecture together and helps reshape the way people interact with the Chicago River,” said Mayor Emanuel. “It is a fitting tribute to align the 2019 programming with the Year of Chicago Theatre; bringing new energy to the Riverwalk and honoring the cultural and artistic diversity that theater adds to our city.”
“Our hope in aligning with the City of Chicago’s Year of Chicago Theatre is to present a program that showcases Chicago’s multi-faceted and multi-disciplinary theater community,” said Art on theMART Executive Director Cynthia Noble. “Each selected artist contributes in a unique way to Chicago theater and will lend their perspectives to Art on theMART’s monumental platform, transforming this iconic work of public art.”
