Underwater Beauty Murals with Shedd Aquarium

Pro-Ject created and produced a compelling street art program designed to celebrate Shedd Aquarium's brand new exhibit - Underwater Beauty. Alongside our partners, Ava-Grey Designs, we identified five local artists to interpret and bring to life their own version of underwater "beauty worth saving". Check out the video below for a glimpse into their artistic process and the murals that Shedd Aquarium gifted to neighborhoods around the city. Find all 5 murals via Shedd Aquarium’s Interactive Map.
