The Floating Museum explores the relationships between art, community, architecture, and public institutions

Floating Museum Arts Collective co-directors Faheem Majeed and Andrew Schachman with Justin Kaufmann, Chicago, September 2019

Floating Museum co-directors Faheem Majeed and Andrew Schachman joins Justin on Extension 720 to talk about the Cultural Transit Assembly, the latest public art initiative from Chicago’s Floating Museum collective. Faheem and Andrew talk about what the Floating Museum is, where the idea for the Floating Museum comes from, the city of Chicago’s investment to public art, the authenticity of a pop-up exhibition, the direct connection between art and public spaces and why they chose the Green Line for this particular transit project.

This is the podcast for Extension 720. The show originates from Chicago on WGN Radio and features newsmakers, tastemakers and trailblazers.  Hosted by award-winning broadcaster Justin Kaufmann, this talk show/audio magazine goes in-depth to help you better understand the city (and world) that you live in.
