Art on Track is a mobile art gallery located inside a six-car Chicago subway train. Celebrating its 5th anniversary this September, the public art project showcases local emerging artists and art groups by giving them an entire car to transform into a work of art.

Once on board, riders/viewers can interact with the artists and the art, and switch between cars as the train runs on the ‘Loop’ of elevated tracks in downtown Chicago. The organizers of the popular initiative are turning to Kickstarter to help fund the project, which runs from 5-10 pm on September 22.

Artists can apply for free to be included in the show and the curators specifically target under-represented creatives. Meant as a platform that puts the artists on the forefront of a high-visibility event, Art on Track brings art directly to the public in a very easily-accessible way.
