Stockholder, Professor and Chair of the Department of Visual Arts, is the third artist commissioned by the Chicago Loop Alliance (CLA) for this prestigious annual project. Titled Color Jam, her three-dimensional piece will fill an intersection – including buildings, sidewalks, and roadways – with colorful geometric shapes.
“My idea is to fill an intersection with color,” Stockholder told the Chicago Tribune of the installation. “That will include the road and the sidewalk and up the building so there’s a cubic volume of color in the intersection wedged between four corners and four buildings.” Stockholder says the work is meant to create a landscape that looks like an animated film.
The installation will be unveiled in June.
