Art on theMART

In conjunction with CPS All-City Visual Arts, Art on theMART highlights selected CPS seniors’ artwork from across the city in a collaborative exhibition: Select Works from the Chicago Public School Class of 2022

Art on theMART—a singular public art platform that operates through a custom projection system that includes 34 projectors installed on the Chicago Riverwalk, has transformed hi-resolution photos of 2D artworks from a range of media (created by CPS seniors) into animated, dynamic projections that fill and move across the MART’s façade, set to music.

We celebrate the CPS seniors whose artworks were chosen to be included in this one-of-a-kind exhibition:
