The set up of a $3.5 million public artwork fee that includes work by greater than 20 Chicago artists is almost full and it’s fairly darn spectacular.

Above is part of the piece titled a murmuration by Jina Valentinewhich consists of 600 wall-mounted convex aluminum discs of various sizes on view within the Passenger Degree Concourse.

The art work is an information visualization mapping over 200 years of immigration to the Illinois area. The colour shifts as you progress from one finish of the piece to the opposite, illustrating the adjustments in immigration patterns over time.

Shinsekai Yori / From the New World (above), by Mayumi Lake is on view within the T5 Worldwide Arrivals Hall.

Buffalo Chart at O’Hare, by Bernard Williams, can also be within the Worldwide Arrivals Hall.

Along with all the brand new works on view in Terminal 5, you’ll discover artwork in Terminal 1, Terminal 2, the Terminal 3 Rotunda, the muli-modal transportation facility, and elsewhere on the O’Hare Airport Campus.
