Opening Sunday, April 14th, from 2PM - 4PM
International artist, Jan Tichy will review his work for the new project Art on the MART – a digital art installation projecting on the facade of the Merchandise Mart building.
In a special encore showing, Art on the MART will be screening Artes in Horto: Seven Gardens for Chicago on the evening of the lecture!
“Jan Tichy’s (contribution to Art on the MART), Artes in Horto – Seven Gardens for Chicago considers the work of seven local, historically consecutive artists who considered nature to be a significant influence on their practice. The natural elements from their artworks, animated and mapped on theMART’s facade, will grow into projected gardens of local art.” – artonthemart.com
Artes in Horto: Seven Gardens for Chicago was commissioned for Art on theMART by the Terra Foundation for American Art as part of Art Design Chicago, a yearlong celebration of Chicago’s art and design history in 2018.
