The Wabash Lights is a site-specific light installation on the underside of the Wabash Avenue elevated train tracks in Chicago’s loop that will transform an iconic piece of Chicago infrastructure into a canvas for a dynamic, interactive experience, serving as a catalyst for a re-energized Wabash Avenue.

Phase 1 of The Wabash Lights is Live!
Just south of Monroe Street on Wabash Avenue you can see what over 900 people made possible last year with our first Kickstarter. The first phase, that we call The Beta Test, of The Wabash Lights is twelve feet of light that we are using to troubleshoot design and technical challenges as we work to raise funds for the full installation.
