Normally when I go to Chicago and make my way down the Magnificant Mile of Michigan Avenue I am drawn to the delights in the windows of the the ritzy and fashionable stores, the wild getups of the people on the streets and the always fabulous floral or botanical displays along the sidewalks. Always a treat.
Recently I found myself fascinated with refrigerators. Yep. Michigan Avenue is lined with “repurposed” refrigerators. “Fine Art Fridges” is sponsored by ComEd, designed to raise awareness of the recycling program they offer.
The outdoor public exhibit includes nine fridges, transformed into works of art, taking the idea of decorating the door of a traditional refrigerator with magnets to a whole new level.
I captured a few with my camera. Stroll the street with me and enjoy.
