Additional Programming

Art on theMART projects four renowned artworks by Andy Warhol in alignment with the Art Institute of Chicago’s fall exhibition Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again across the 2.5 acre river-facade of theMART. The artworks, Andy Warhol’s Liz #3 [Early Colored Liz], Flowers, Shot Orange Marilyn, and Cow Wallpaper [Pink on Yellow] join the current Fall Program. The selections are accompanied by the song “Lakkalia” by Blue Dot. The partnership enables these masterpieces to be seen by the thousands of locals and visitors traversing downtown Chicago and the Chicago Riverwalk each evening.
