Andy Warhol's "Empire" at The Art Institute of Chicago

This Friday night, the Art Institute of Chicago will be screening Andy Warhol's experimental film Empire in a most unsual manner. In celebration of the new exhibition Lightyears: Conceptual Art and the Photograph, 1964-1977 the museum will be projecting the 8-hour film from the Bluhm Family Terrace across Millennium Park onto the facade of the Aon Center. That's right, a film about a building is going to be projected onto a building.

If you're downtown between 6 PM on Friday and 2 AM on Saturday, come sneak a peek at one of Warhol's most controversial and amazing films.

PS, the film almost never screens in its entirety, so this is a rare and exciting chance to check it out!
