The 'Art on Track' Gives Artists a Chance to Expose Their Works in Chicago

{SummaryTitle}

The ‘Art on Track’ initiative was created by the Art Institute of Chicago in 2008. The goal is to allow local artists to showcase their works in a non-traditional setting, which in this case is the Chicago Transit Authority train car. Every year a lucky artist gets to showcase their creativity, while lucky passengers get to observe.

Community-driven ventures are incredibly beneficial, as not only do they build strong communities, but they also encourage youth to participate in positive activities. This initiative is also helping to promote the local public transit system, by luring people in to see the spectacle. The ‘Art on Track’ is especially beneficial to budding artists who want a platform to demonstrate their abilities, as well as those who want to snag some media attention.
