We love renowned artist Jessica Stockholder’s “Color Jam”: a new installation at State and Adams in Chicago. Commissioned by Chicago Loop Alliance, “Color Jam” is proof that Chicago is not just made of steel buildings, but consists of buildings, façades, sidewalks, and crosswalks in bold colors.
Below are Stockholder’s words of her vision in creating “Color Jam”:“The fictive potential of surface, so thoroughly cultivated through the history of painting, is always ready to burst, spilling forth imagined richness, full of emotional, subjective resonance, and wandering focus is here woven together with the more mundane everyday surface of the street corner. [“Color Jam”] celebrates and demands that the evocative surface of this Chicago street corner be expanded. The corner is canvas, stage, pedestal, and frame against which the public can view a parade of shifting color relationships.”
“Color Jam” brings vibrancy to the city where you least expect it. It’s fun, bold and a little bit like being in The Wizard of Oz or a Dr. Seuss cartoon. Thank you, Jessica Stockholder.
