PUBLIC ART ON THE CHICAGO RIVERWALK

The Chicago Public Art Collection includes more than 500 works of art exhibited in over 150 municipal facilities around the city, such as police stations, libraries, and CTA stations. As part of the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, the Public Art Program administers the Chicago Public Art Collection and implements the City’s Percent for Art Ordinance.

The Public Art Program includes exhibits along the Chicago Riverwalk pedestrian trail. In addition to the glorious views of architecturally significant skyscrapers which create an urban canyon along the Main Branch of the Chicago River, the City has permanent public art and rotating exhibits featured throughout your experience.
