Retroblogging: Chicago Trip 2012, Art Institute

Art Institute of Chicago, January 2012

Marisa Merz
Italian, born 1931
Living Sculpture, 1966
Aluminum and paint
351.2 x 264.2 x 180.3 cm (138 1/4 x 104 x 71 in.)
Through prior gifts of Adeline Yates and Fowler McCormick; Wilson L. Mead Fund, 2011.52

Better pictures and a description of the art here. I just liked the contrast of the kinetic vs. the static and the way they framed out the sleek architectural components of the city skyline.
