CHICAGO (AP) – A student from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago will have his artwork displayed on a mural along one of Chicago’s busiest expressways.

Bank of America, the Art Institute of Chicago and the school announced Wednesday that Adam Horrigan’s artwork will be displayed along the Kennedy Expressway this spring and summer. Horrigan is a visual communication design student from Grand Island, N.Y. The mural is reminiscent of pop artist Roy Lichtenstein’s work.

The Art Institute of Chicago will launch the “Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective” exhibit later this year. Horrigan’s colorful design includes images of the Chicago flag, the Chicago River and architectural landmarks.
