After School Matters:
Shaping the Future



In commemoration of the 30th anniversary for After School Matters, Shaping the Future celebrates work created by teens in the programs over the past three decades. It features dance performances, mosaics, and music created by Chicago teens—both past and present. All the music was composed by musicians in the Future Music Creators program, led by Gerald Bailey with additional musical support by Alejandro Ayala.

Art on theMART is the largest permanent digital art projection in the world, projecting contemporary artwork across the 2.5-acre river-façade of theMART.  Projections are visible to the public from Wacker Drive and along the Chicago Riverwalk.
