Color Jam

For her first major public art installation since she turned Madison Square Park into a giant, bright playground, Jessica Stockholder is giving a similarly primary-hued makeover to a busy intersection in downtown Chicago. The project at the corner of Adams and State streets, “Color Jam,” is due to be completed today.

The huge piece, which spans building façades, sidewalks, streets, and even the bases of lampposts, is part of the ArtLoop program to bring public art to Chicago’s downtown Loop.
