CHICAGO (WLS) — This weekend, the city will unveil an $8-million project that will transform Chicago’s Riverwalk.
Wednesday morning, ABC7 got an exclusive, live look at what “Art on theMart” will look like.
Art will be projected from here to the 2 1/2 acre facade of the Merchandise Mart.
It is the largest, permanent digital projection system in the world. You will be able to see it for two hours a night, Wednesday through Sunday from March to December.
Obscura Digital, which oversaw the system’s creation and installation, said there are 34 projectors permanently situated across the Chicago River from Merchandise Mart, just above where people walk along the River Walk.
