"The Loop Is Jammin' With Color" - photo from chicago.thelocaltourist (2012); "The Chicago Loop Alliance unveiled Color Jam, and art installation by Jessica Stockholder. Buildings, sidewalks, and even crosswalks are festooned with bright swaths of vinyl. The artist has covered downtown with more than 75,000 square feet of it, turning the neighborhood into a Willy Wonka-esque playground of festive color."
