Missed Kanye's Projections in the Sloop? Here is Your 2nd Chance

Late in May we posted about the infamous Kanye West's guerrilla marketing tactic of projecting videos from his new album on iconic buildings across Chicago and the world.  One of those happened to be in our backyard at the Field Museum.

Well if you said "aw-shucks, I missed something cool", fret not - you have a second chance to see it again according to the Red Eye:
Along with the (conveniently timed?) illegal availability of Kanye West’s album “Yeezus” Friday, the Chicago-raised rapper announced a round of new “projections” slated for locations across the country Saturday. Previously, West had projected video on buildings around the world for his release of “New Slaves,” including Wrigley Field, a Belgian castle and an empty Pennsylvania prison. The contents of the videos remain a mystery, but West’s website lists the venues where the projections will be playing locally.  
The videos will hit the following Chicago spots Saturday (and early Sunday):
Ryan Field (Evanston) - 9:30 to 10 p.m.
Bridgeview Bank (Bridgeview) - 10:30 to 11 p.m.
Union Station (Loop) - 12:30 to 1 a.m.
Millennium Park - 1:30 to 2 a.m.
Pritzker Park - 11:30 p.m. to 12 a.m.
The Field Museum (Museum Campus) - 12:30 to 1 a.m.
DuSable Museum of African American History (Washington Park) - 9:30 to 10 p.m.
McCormick Place - 11:30 to 12 a.m.
United Center: 1:30 to 2 a.m.
Maybe Yeezus has plans for a surprise late night concert at the United Center?  Probably not - he's probably tending to his new baby girl!
