    Lab: Lighting up the El tracks with Chicago's Largest Piece of Public Art

    Thursday, Oct 17, 2019 12:30 - 2:00 PM @ Gensler
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Things are getting a lot brighter in Chicago. The Wabash Lights is working to reenvision the future of interactive public art in Chicago by creating a canvass of lights that can be programmed by anyone, on the underside of Chicago’s El tracks. Join Kickstarter Co-Founder Charles Adler and Maria Demopoulos to get a first-hand look into their interactive light installation and STEAM (STEM + Art) curriculum for a chance to contribute to the largest piece of public art in Chicago. This in-depth look at the confluence of technology and art will give you a better sense of how places get their feelings and how STEAM approaches in schools are building the future of public art and education in Chicago.
