    You never know what you'll find on the train at Art on Track.

    We've all seen some crazy stuff on the train, but rarely is it anything that could be mistaken for art.

    That all changes on Saturday with Art On Track, dubbed the world's largest mobile art exhibit.

    Eight CTA El cars on one train will be decorated in a number of fully interactive ways. If past years are any indication, expect to see anything from bubble-wrapped carts, to punching bags strung throughout the train cars. The specially-chosen local designers will also be on board to speak with passengers about their art.

    The entrance to Art on Track is at the Adams and Wabash CTA platform, and the train will circle around the Loop from 5-10 p.m.

    Tickets can be purchased in advanced for $8 at www.ticketleap.com or on the platform the day of the event for $10.

    A small price to pay to avoid putting up with the woman with rollers in her hair screaming into her cell phone.
