Chicago’s Art on Track festival transformed a subway train into a movable art gallery of multiple installations by over 50 artists, from thematic rooms to choreographed performance pieces. The standout project, the Mobile Garden Car by noisivelvet, covered one of the train car with a thick carpet of greenery, including plants and sod donated by local . The moving greenscape looped around Chicago’s downtown for 5 hours, inviting commuters to sit on seats lined with bushy lawngrass and potted plants or stand amid tall grass and hanging ivy.
