Somewhere in Chicago, an intersection is now decked out in its summer wardrobe of green, blue and red. The intersection is at E. Adams and E. State, and the project is from artist Jessica Stockholder and the Chicago Loop Alliance. Until mid-September, the project saturates the surfaces of sidewalks, crosswalks and even building facades with vibrant hues as part of the largest art installation in the city of Chicago. Here’s the best video I could find of the project, from a local news station featuring interviews with both the artist and the alliance.
