The brand new immersive Artopia art show in West Loop is providing an escape for Chicagoans to explore, indulge, and enjoy futuristic art beginning April 16th.
Throughout the pandemic, artists have had to find new ways to draw inspiration and ultimately inspire us during the most dire of times. Thus, we’ve been treated to a vast array of unique art shows in Chicago, with a few other larger art installations planned for the summer. These works of iconic street art are stunning and often times have a way of transplanting us from the current state of desolate unknown we are in. However, this latest Year 3000-esque art show is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Even Neil deGrasse Tyson would be proud.
Per the event’s website, “This unique experience, hosted in the gorgeous 32,000 square foot venue in Chicago’s West Loop, invites you to step into the universe of large scale light art installations and sculpture work from some of the most talented street artists around the country. And last but not least, the tour ends at The Artopia Lounge, where VIP & Icon ticket holders can stay to enjoy drinks in the exhibit.”
