Art On Track Brings A Mobile Art Gallery To Chicago
SALVO, a non-profit group of artists and designers aim to bring awareness of the arts to the city.
On August 7th, a full eight-car train of Chicago’s ‘L’ will be transformed into a “mobile art experience.” Throughout the evening, riders will be able to see an everyday activityâ€”riding the trainâ€”from a completely different angle. The train will circle the downtown loop, picking up passengers at stops and allowing them to transfer to cars with different themes.
Produced by a non-profit group of artists and designers called SALVO, the aim is not just to raise awareness about art, but also make it easier for citizens to enjoy it and create an experience that patrons wouldn’t get in a traditional art gallery.
