Jessica Stockholder Chosen for Art Loop 2012 Installation

Jessica Stockholder has been selected to create a dynamic art installation in the Chicago Loop this summer.

Stockholder, Professor and Chair of the┬áDepartment of Visual Arts, is the third artist commissioned by the Chicago Loop Alliance (CLA) for this prestigious annual project.┬áTitled 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.
