Okay, pardon the silly headline. I was walking through downtown Chicago and noticed something a little different staring at me…a sculpture created by local artist Tony Tasset. On display in Chicago’s Pritzger Park through October, it’s an example of how Chicago has embraced summertime in the big city.
In this second picture, you’ll notice the Sears (now called Willis) Tower in the background. I’m usually not very good interpreting deep meaning behind works of art, but in today’s world of cameras (big brother is watching) at many busy intersections and tired eyes from hard working bloggers staring at their computer screens, I could appreciate this amusing and timely piece of work.
How about you…did your city commission any public works of art for the summer? If so, please share.
