The new addition is said to “imply a sense of elevation and spiritual uplifting.”
A new iconic sculpture has joined our wonderful array of art pieces in Chicago. The new landmark was announced on November 13, 2020, and after two months of being blessed with the latest masterpiece, we’ve rounded up some of the best photos.
The new sculpture is by the world-renowned Spanish-Swiss architect, structural engineer, sculptor, and painter Santiago Calatrava. It now stands in River Point Park 29 feet high and 29 feet wide. Named The Constellation it twists in and out forming a leafy spiral. The bright red of the sculpture bounces and reflects off the mirrored architecture that surrounds it making it a unique focal point of River Point. A model of the new Calatrava sculpture will join models of Chicago’s Picasso, Calder, and Dubuffet sculptures on display at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Scroll through the photos and see what you think of Chicago’s latest artistic addition.
