Chicago behind the curtain: I

Back in May, the Chicago Transit Authority did some painting to the elevated tracks in the loop area of downtown Chicago. These HUGE curtains were installed to protect pedestrians from any harmful paint that was being grinded away.


These curtains reminded me of the great public artist Christo's work with curtains and wrapping buildings.
