Drive along Chicago's boulevards and you can appreciate art without ever leaving the car.

"Sculpture on the Boulevards" is a new effort to bring culture to the neighborhoods.

Dozens of sculptures are on display, including this one called "expanding universe".

The art will decorate the boulevards through next fall. It's the largest temporary installation of its kind ever in Chicago neighborhoods.
