Thank God: "God Bless America" Gone

It looks like the “unknown date” of the departure for J. Seward Johnson’s God Bless America was yesterday, Thursday February 25th.

I had to smile when I read James Janega’s description of the event: “Yes, artist J. Seward Johnson’s beloved statue remake of American Gothic on Michigan Avenue was taken down overnight.” 

“Beloved,” huh?  Last week on the Chicago Art Blog we looked at at a few people who don’t share that sentiment

The question now is what will Seward Johnson’s Sculpture Foundation curse us with next at Pioneer Plaza?
