Chicago Opens Outdoor Exhibition in Millennium Park

Posted on: May 18th, 2013 by Quik Shade No Comments


In late May, an exhibition called “Spontaneous Interventions” will be set up in Chicago and will be open to the public for viewing.  Some of the areas will include a pop-up canopy that is meant to be a kind of “outdoor living room” where people can sit and enjoy a space designed by talented artists. 

The space has a wood structure and canopy top with many colorful panels that change based on the conditions of the light and wind.  This and many other exhibitions will give people a chance to experience design and architecture in a playful way. 

From the images I have seen of the exhibitions that will be open this spring and summer, it looks like it will be a fun experience for families to enjoy art in an outdoor environment.  Sometimes the type of artwork that is interactive, like the moving instant canopy with colored panels, is more appealing for parents and young children that will respond to it. 

The design work becomes a part of the outdoor space instead of just something to look at and admire.  The outdoor living room looks beautiful and can be a functional part of the park for the time that it is there.
