Free The Artists In Chicago!

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.
