One last look at Chicago from a tourist view–
Above–A view through the Wrigley Building–walk into a sparkling alley, see Chicago along the river– framed by two sides of the Wrigley Building. Definitely Unexpected Art.
Rats on Monroe Street
Rats on Monroe street a few doors from the Italian Village. It was a group union members demonstrating outside a business that was using non-union labor–in union lingo, rats. Colorful, interesting, unexpected, but not Unexpected Art.
Winged Victory of Samonthrace on the corner of Adams and Dearborn Street.
A replica of the Winged Victory of Samonthrace, covered in “gold” in a building lobby on the corner of Adams and Dearborn Streets. This brought to mine a glass sculpture at the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas, which I wrote about on this blog on April 20, 2016. http://www.chicagonow.com/unexpected-art/2016/04/a-glass-sculpture-is-unexpected-art-and-more/ . I like the original marble sculpture better, but this version sure did catch my eye. Because of its subject matter and location–Unexpected Art.
