Art on theMART is the largest permanent digital art projection in the world, projecting contemporary artwork across the 2.5 acre river-façade of theMART. Projections are visible to the public from Wacker Dr. and along the Chicago Riverwalk for two hours beginning approximately 30 minutes after sundown, five nights a week (Wednesday–Sunday), for ten months of the year (March–December).


The program content rotates every season. Art on theMART’s 2019 program aligns with the City of Chicago’s Year of Chicago Theatre, a city-wide celebration of Chicago’s theatre community presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) and the League of Chicago Theatres. On March 13, lighting designer John Boesche will unveil the first acts of 7 soliloquies, a multi-part projection piece that captures seven significant Chicago theater artists in brief solo performances. In June, a subsequent collaborative piece by two Chicago theater professionals, scenic designer John Musial and Lucky Plush Artistic Director Julia Rhoads, will premiere.
