Here’s video of John Henry’s “Big Blue” sculpture in the yard of a luxury Chicago home.
The homeowner, John Novak, is fighting City Hall to keep the art in his front yard.
Let there be more sculpture pieces in out-of-the-way places, not just on the downtown museum campus (with its outrageous parking rates). John Henry’s “Big Blue” sculpture is not a public nuisance.
Here's evidence that Chicagoans need to demand more art:
- Neighborhood art murals are "accidently" painted over-literally 'whited-out' frequently.
- Art courses have been removed from Chicago's public schools.
- Fine art painters are still fighting the city to paint, do their art, on public streets just like they do in Paris!
Honestly, Chicago needs more art for everybody's sake.
