Holding the title of the largest permanent digital art projection in the world, ART on theMART attracts thousands to the Riverwalk every week by firing up 34 digital projectors and transforming the 2.5-acre river-façade into stunning visual spectacles.
With spring, summer, and fall programs providing various different projections throughout the year the Merchandise Mart also embraces the most important days in the calendar with unique temporary displays.
Tonight, and the next couple of nights, the iconic building will be turning red, white, and blue to celebrate Independence Day.
Along with the sounds of classic Americana songs played along the Riverwalk from 9 pm, national pride will be emanating from the Chicago Riverwalk for an hour and a half.
“Join us for our annual holiday tradition celebrating American Independence Day. The digital art projection illuminates 2.5 acres of THE MART’s facade in traditional colors associated with the Fourth of July – red, white, and blue – with classic Americana songs playing from the audio speakers installed along the Chicago Riverwalk” reads the ART on theMART website.
Spectators can watch the free projections from the jetty section of the Chicago Riverwalk on Wacker Drive between Wells Street and Franklin Street.More information can be found here.
