This weekend on August 7th from 5 pm – 10 pm Art on Track will take over a CTA train as artists transform it into a work of art.
As Art on Track enters its third year, you can expect artists to transform the train cars into unique art environments, ranging from installations to interactive happenings to display spaces. The slideshow has some images of installations from past years.
This year they have also upped the ante by creating a $5,000 prize for the best artist on display. I’ll be participating in the event as a judge so I’m especially interested to see how the artist’s creativity takes over the El.
You can enter the Art on Track train at the Adams/Wabash and Washington/Wells stops, with handicap accessible entry on Washington/Wells. Tickets are required, at a very modest price, you can find them here.
