Dreaming of summer in the depths of a frigid January day has us reflecting on the fun and colorful things of summer 2012. Our neighborhood, in Chicago’s Loop, was bedazzled with surprising displays of playful color. Artist Jessica Stockholder envisioned a “three dimensional painting” spilling out of the windows. We applaud the imagination and gumption it takes to conceive, persuade and execute such a large scale and whimsical installation. Bold color swaths of temporary, foil-backed vinyl covered every possible surface; including heavily trafficked walkways, lamps and store windows.
