THE BEACH IS HOTT AT CHICAGO'S NAVY PIER


Navy Pier, Chicago's top-attended lakefront destination, invites you and your friends to beat the winter blues by hitting The Beach Chicago – a free, interactive public art installation on display in the historic Aon Grand Ballroom at Chicago's Navy Pier beginning Saturday, January 19 through Sunday, February 3.

The Beach Chicago will transform Navy Pier's iconic 18,000-square-foot ballroom space into an indoor beach, complete with lounge deck chairs, lifeguard chairs, umbrellas, inflatables and signage that mimic the sensation of a day at the beach. 


Earlier iterations of The Beach have taken place in Washington, D.C.; Tampa, Florida; Sydney, Australia; Paris, France; and Bangkok, Thailand. Chicago will serve as the third site in the U.S. and first in the Midwest.


Created by New York- based designers, Snarkitecture, The Beach Chicago is an immersive art installation, consisting of one million antimicrobial and recyclable plastic spheres enclosed in a large, open space.  Guests of all ages are welcome to 'swim' through the sea of translucent white spheres as part of the artistic experience or simply gaze and revel in the installation from the pier and other viewing areas throughout the installation.
