Art Advising & Commissions

Moto at Merchandise Mart

In partnership with Gensler, the global design and architecture firm, and MOTO phones, CAC commissioned six artists to create original artwork in the new MOTO offices inside the Merchandise Mart and a secondary location.

Four graffiti artists, including Elizabeth Lazdins, David Cho, Luis Ramirez and Mario Gonzalez created colorful murals inside of six stairwells connecting the office’s two floors and the interiors of all of the bathroom facilities. Yarn artist Lindsay Obermeyer constructed a 72-foot yarn bomb for the Merchandise Mart space and an additional 16 foot yarn bomb for the secondary location. Obermeyer invited MOTO staff to engage with the piece and participate in its creation.
