How did the biggest public art installation in the history of Chicago come together?
Well, it didn’t happen overnight. But it certainly seemed that way.
In the span of just two weeks, despite having to work with over 70,000 square feet of vinyl, four different types of material and the occasional downpour from Mother Nature, Bloomingdale Signs by Tomorrow transformed a bustling city intersection into a 3-D multimedia explosion of colored vinyl called “Color Jam.”
We’ve captured the stories, photos and videos of how Bloomingdale Signs by Tomorrow converted the vision of artist Jessica Stockholder into the imaginative display that millions of Chicagoans can experience all summer long.
