Have you experienced the foamy fun at Navy Pier yet?
The latest public art installation in Polk Bros Park, “A retrospective view of the pathway” by Roger Hiorns, is a must-see interactive piece that blasts foam each weekday at noon (and also again at 4 p.m. on weekends) into two giant vats. Once they’re filled, the foam overflows for about an hour… and gets everywhere. Whether you’re five or 50, we dare you not to jump into the action.
“A retrospective view of the pathway” is the second public piece to visit Navy Pier as part of Chicago’s Year of Public Art, following the success of “Impulse” earlier this spring. The installation is presented in collaboration with Expo Chicago, and is a part of IN/SITU Outside, a citywide initiative that provides the opportunity for Expo Chicago exhibitors to present temporary public art installations situated along the lakefront and throughout Chicago neighborhoods.
The exhibition will run all summer long, departing Oct. 1, and is free and open to the public.
