Pop-Up Art to Attract Retailers

Pop-Up Art to Attract Retailers
Pop Up Art
While office and industrial try to find ways to decrease vacancy, retail does it for free. The Chicago Loop Alliance has started a program called Pop-Up Art Loop, in which local artists can display their works in vacant retail spaces. CLA's Ty Tabing says artists don't pay rent on these spaces, but it gives landlords like Marc Realty, which owns this space at  23 E. Madison, a great increase in curb appeal. Artists in each space will change periodically. And no, the giant eye down on Van Buren Street didn't fit into any of the spaces.
