CTA’s Mobile Garden
"Our Mobile Garden broke the traditional silent gaze that you see in both galleries and trains into something energetic and alive," says Joseph Baldwin of Noisivelvet, a Chicago-based public art advocacy group. The Mobile Garden is a plant garden installation in a CTA car, filling the interior and exterior spaces with lush green grass and foliage. Beyond surprising and entertaining passengers, the installation hopes to bring critical thought to sustainable living, native-plant agriculture, and urban isolation.
