Perceptual Experience: An Interactive Art Exhibition

Perceptual Experience is an all-new interactive art experience from renowned inventor and artist Michael Murphy, whose groundbreaking work in perceptual art has captivated audiences worldwide.  

Perceptual Experience is designed for active participation. Touching across a variety of topical subjects and bringing a number of Murphy's most celebrated creations together for the first time, guests are treated to an unforgettable sensory journey where illusion meets art through large-scale, layered works that incorporate sight, sound and movement.

Experiential 3D installations shift shape and meaning as the viewer moves, from the playful and visually dazzling “Wow” to the poignant “Polina” inspired by the story of a Ukrainian refugee girl and her family. Also on view will be one of Murphy’s most iconic pieces, “Air,” in which an illusion of the Air Jordan One transforms into the iconic Jumpman logo. A School of the Art Institute of Chicago alumni, Murphy also will debut new works including an installation dedicated to Chicago that is made up of iconography from the city’s past and present.

Curious minds from all walks are invited to experience the mesmerizing world of Perceptual Experience and join the conversation surrounding the power of perception in art and beyond. To learn more about this limited time event, visit our website.
