LIGHTSCAPE: A MULTISENSORY EXPERIENCE ON STATE STREET
In November of 2011, Mayor Rahm Emanuel officially unveiled Chicago’s newest attraction: Lightscape: A Multisensory Experience on State Street. The one-of-a-kind installation is located in eighteen planters–each comprised of dozens of LED lights–along State Street from Lake to Van Buren. Between 10 am and 8 pm each day, the installation’s embedded speakers broadcast musical selections and special announcements, as lights change patterns in synchronization with songs.
Lightscape: A Multisensory Experience on State Street was developed with funding from the Special Service Area #1; its inaugural season was supported in part by OSRAM Sylvania.
