Summer 2019 Program
On June 9, Art on theMART debuted a collaboration between theatermaker John Musial and Lucky Plush Artistic Director Julia Rhoads. The work, titled Limelight Parade, utilizes fragmented choreography and script from Julia Rhoads' work with Lucky Plush, a Chicago-based dance and theater ensemble, reimagined within John Musial's layered and evocative projection design. John Boesche will also present new acts to 7 soliloquies, a multi-part projection piece that premiered March 13, highlighting seven Chicago theater artists in brief solo performances.
Art on theMART projected four iconic artworks from the Art Institute of Chicago's permanent collection. The artworks included Georgia O'Keeffe's Yellow Hickory Leaves with Daisy, George-Pierre Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Latte- 1984, Vincent Van Gough's The Bedroom and Grant Wood's American Gothic.
