Art 44.46
Is it “public art” or is art in public space?

Chicago, Illinois, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009

As urban dwellers we are becoming more and more disconnected from nature. Highways, skyscrapers, and train tracks have replaced views of wildlife in our day-to-day existence as we continue to consume and pollute. Richard M. Daley’s plan for a Green Chicago couldn’t arrive at a better time. Energy efficiency, open spaces, and green design are all parts of a plan to make Chicago the greenest city in the world. How does this begin?  Located in the 44th and 46th Wards of Chicago neighbourhood Lakeview East.
