April 14, 2014-April 15, 2015 marks the dates of a lunar eclipse. This could be the fulfillment of a prophecy. This could also cause some apocalyptic art in Chicago.
Perhaps Sportsman’s Park will magically appear in Chicago’s, Cicero suburb. Thoroughbreds may magically appear wearing gold horseshoes. Of course, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse will be riding these thoroughbreds.
Sportscasters may declare the Chicago Cubs the 2014 World Series Champions even though no professional, baseball team has played enough games this year to claim that title. (It certainly is not October.) The Cubs may get an animated logo.
All the paintings in all Chicago’s museums may become animated. In Grant Wood’s, American Gothic, the human figure representing a farmer, and the human figure representing the farmer’s wife, may walk out of this painting. In Georges Seurat’s, A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, the human figures may leave the park to get some Chicago Style Hot Dogs. In René Magritte’s, Time Transfixed, the transfixed objects may move—the clock hands may spin and the locomotive may move off the canvas.
Edvard Munch’s, The Scream, may appear as an extremely enlarged painting hovering over the Art Institute of Chicago. Chicagoans may discover why the foreground character’s head has a light bulb shape. Chicagoans may discover the symbolism behind the two, human figures in the left middle ground.
Billboard art (text and images) may leap from their high positions to dance upon Chicago streets. Posters at CTA train stations and in bus stop kiosks may become large postage stamps. The Art Institute’s, lion sculpture on Michigan Avenue may roar loudly.
