The Beach Chicago

Aon Grand Ballroom

Created by New York- based designers, Snarkitecture, The Beach Chicago is an immersive art installation, which consists of a large, open room filled with more than a million antimicrobial and recyclable plastic balls, along with deck chairs, lifeguard chairs, umbrellas and signage that mimic the sensation of a day at the beach. Fittingly, The Beach Chicago also includes a pier hovering over the ‘sea’ of balls from which onlookers can watch and revel in the installation below. Escape the bitter cold Chicago weather this winter with a day at The Beach Chicago, on display in Navy Pier’s historic Aon Grand Ballroom from January 19 through February 3, 2019.

The Beach Chicago is presented in partnership with EXPO CHICAGO and supported in part by a grant from the Chicago Free For All Fund.


Please check back soon for daily hours of operation.
