Artist creates walk-through canvas in downtown Chicago
For her latest work, artist Jessica Stockholder zoomed out, way out, to envision a three-dimensional painting covering an entire intersection in downtown Chicago. The installation, dubbed "Color Jam," was commissioned by the Chicago Loop Alliance, who let the artist run loose with her idea of saturating sidewalks, crosswalks, and even building facades in bold washes of green, blue and red.
From the press release:
The piece celebrates and demands that the evocative surface of this Chicago street corner be expanded. The corner is canvas, stage, pedestal, and frame against which the public can view a parade of shifting color relationships.
"Color Jam" is up until September.
