ART ON theMART IS A PERMANENT PUBLIC ART

INSTALLATION UNPRECEDENTED IN SCALE, ILLUMINATING

THE 2.5 ACRE FAÇADE OF theMART. 

In the spirit of Chicago’s great legacy of public art and culture, theMART is a

next-generation media space unlike anywhere else in the world.

In September 2018, theMART introduced Art on theMART to the world with a launch event that attracted over 32,000 people to the Riverwalk and Wacker Drive in downtown Chicago, transforming its urban context. 

With its minimum thirty-year duration, its location in the heart of downtown Chicago along the Chicago River and its substantive and relevant content, Art on theMART is the next iconic milestone on Chicago’s visionary trajectory of public art.

Art on theMART is a singular media platform and a major philanthropic gift to the City of Chicago: local and international works are on display and freely accessible as public art with no branding.
