Mayor Rahm Emanuel and DCASE recently proposed "Art on theMART," a new permanent large-scale lighting installation across nearly three acres of the river-facing façade of theMART (formerly the Merchandise Mart). The project, privately funded by Vornado Realty Trust, is slated for a fall 2018 completion. "Iconic art and cultural programming on the Riverwalk has always been inherent and integral in helping us embrace the river as the city's newest recreational frontier," said Mayor Emanuel.
