As a part of their 28-floor renova- tion, CME Group introduced vibrant images of global cities, products, trading and technology for their public corridor walls. Photographs were displayed behind large-scale, Plexiglas panels and suspended by stainless steel pegs. These materials beautifully match the contemporary energy in the interior architecture and successfully represent the innovative CMEG brand. In addition to the artwork for the public corridors, Chicago Art Source designed and developed a web-based art catalog for CME Group employees to select and order artwork for their pri- vate offices. The diverse, yet curated selection of images appealed to the various interests of the CME Group employees while offering artwork options that were consistent with the brand’s aesthetic. 07/1/10 Artwork Proposal 6

Northern Trust’s goal was to adorn its walls with local photography of natural and historical Chi- cago imagery. Given a budget of $00k, Chicago Art Source worked within an existing data- base of images to create custom works for the space. The photographs were beautifully framed and mounted to Plexiglas using brass stand-off pegs for hanging. The end result infused a touch of the outdoors and complimented their modern, new downtown space. 07/1/10 Artwork Proposal 7

The wood tones vary from light to dark. It is our recommendation to keep the profile of the frame the same on all or most of the artworks selected, but adjust the wood tone to best suit the artwork.
