Sub Chroma takes over on the B_Line

September 15, 2017
Who says EXPO Chicago has to stay put at Navy Pier? For its 2017 festival, the International Exposition of Contemporary and Modern Art is partnering with the West Loop Art Fest for an additional series of programming, called West X. Canvas Chicago and the Pullman Porter Group are joining forces to host a Sub Chroma pop-up event ($29 in advance) as part of West X Saturday, Sept. 16, on the B_Line inside of the Hubbard Cave railway underpass at Peoria Street and Kinzie Avenue in the West Loop.
Sub Chroma, for the uninitiated, is an annual celebration of works at the crossroads of technology and art, produced by Canvas. For this official EXPO-affiliated event, Canvas will move the event outdoors to the Hubbard Cave and the B Line railway above it. Artists at the event will create murals in real time during the pop-up, leaving a lasting impression on the neighborhood.
