Through the end of August, Art Everywhere US celebrates America’s artistic heritage with what is being billed as The “Largest Outdoor Arts Show Ever Conceived.” The free, nation-wide exhibition features masterworks from five major American art museums, including the Art Institute of Chicago, with advertising space donated by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America. Organizers expect the show to greatly increase exposure to American art, with hopes that museums will benefit from a resulting increase in attendance. WFMT’s Sarah Zwinklis has the story.
