Polk Brothers Park, in front of Navy Pier, hosts LOOP, a free, interactive art installation featuring manually powered machines that are each a "cross between a music box, a zoetrope and a railway handcar," and power cartoons when used.

From the host: "The retro-futuristic machine plays animated fairy-tale loops set in motion when visitors work the lever together. When the cylinder starts spinning, it lights up, making the series of still images appear to move. A flickering strobe effect accompanies the black and white images, like in the very first movies. The animation is visible from inside or outside the cylinder and can be viewed from up close or far away. The speed at which the images move, the frequency of the flickering and the tempo of the music are determined by how fast the participants move the lever."
