DOWNTOWN — A "floating museum art barge" is the latest attraction coming to Chicago's Riverwalk, officials say.

The Chicago River Float will dock at various points on the Chicago River and host "screenings, projections, exhibitions and participatory art," Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office said late Thursday.

"The float will travel along the Chicago River and connects communities to nature and art," the mayor's office said in a statement.

More details are expected Friday afternoon, when Emanuel and Chicago Park District officials announce this summer's season of "Night Out in the Parks," an annual cultural series including free movie showings, concerts and theatrical performances.
