The Chicago Loop Alliance is ditching white Christmas lights in the trees this year in favor of a light-based art exhibit called "Lightscape" that will blast holiday music from speakers mounted in LED-lit, 9-foot-tall "prairie grass" stalks. The installation will remain up year-round for five years -- presumably not playing the music the whole time.
