Christie MicroTiles Give New Meaning to “Moving Art" at School of The Art Institute of Chicago

Posted 3/4/2013

As a college of art and design, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) knows how important aesthetics are, which is why they chose Christie® MicroTiles® as the basis for the video wall in its new LeRoy Neiman Center, the school’s first student hub.

Featuring 16-foot tall windows on both sides of the building, the LeRoy Neiman Center offers Chicago Loop visitors a clear view from the street of what is inside.

With such a large audience passing by throughout the day, SAIC wanted a video display that could be reconfigured into new and intriguing shapes, “catching their eyes” and captivating them with an endless collection of innovative, multimedia designs.

“Unlike bulky video monitors and flat panels with thick bezels, Christie MicroTiles are modular products that blend nearly seamlessly with one another, providing artists with a digital canvas of almost limitless shapes for their work,” said SAIC director of media services, Craig Downs.
