Rogers Park Business Alliance will present a vibrant public sculpture exhibit, Tuk Tuks on Devon. This new outdoor exhibition will feature 10 kaleidoscopic sculptures by Chicago artists, lining the diverse Devon Avenue from Bell to Sacramento Avenues starting Sunday, March 19 through Fall 2023.
On opening day, a ribbon-cutting ceremony joined by 50th Ward Alderman Debra Silverstein will take place at 4 p.m. at Sukhadia Corner (2559 W. Devon Avenue). To commence the exhibition, free Tuk Tuk rides will be available between Kedzie and Damen Avenues from 4-8 p.m.
Tuk Tuks are three-wheel short distanced electrical vehicles that originated in Thailand and gained popularity worldwide, providing an easy and eco-friendly way to snake through busy streets quickly. All ten Tuk Tuks in this exhibition are designed by Chicago-based artists with a wide range of imaginative motifs such as monsters, rainbows, scenes of ancient temples and astronauts in outer space. Tuk Tuks on Devon is sponsored by Devon Avenue businesses, Rogers Park Business Alliance, and hosted by Devon Avenue Special Service Area #43. (For more information, visit www.ondevon.org.)
