Color Block

A little color can shift the mood of a room, an outfit, a yard, etc. So, simply, artist Jessica Stockholder wondered what a LOT of color would do to a busy intersection. Commissioned by the Chicago Loop Alliance, Stockholder’s installation Color Jam swaths the streets, sidewalks, and buildings of State and Adams in downtown Chicago with bright, bold colored vinyl. Color Jam will remain until September 30, and until then, will hopefully shift the moods of cars, pedestrians, busses and bikers who share the intersection.
