The vehicle sharing company Zipcar will be in coordination this summer with the Chicago Loop Alliance to bring pop-up art to the masses via the Zipcars.
For the last five years, the Loop Alliance has created small art galleries in the windows of vacant Loop businesses to try and create a sense of community and art appreciation as well as try and bring attention to the need for business expansion in the Loop. Local artists, this year, will be creating art out of the Zipcars. The cars will be popping up at many of the areas festivals and summer events and displaying works created using paint, paper, and a variety of other forms.
Both Zipcar and the Loop Alliance are working toward creating a friendly and attractive atmosphere in the downtown business district. Zipcar is a subsidiary of the Avis car rental corporation. Once again the WindyCity will be given the opportunity to enjoy some great works of art while supporting local businesses.
