middle summer; cloud gate
The sculptures in Millenium Park, Chicago, is the only art experience I managed while in USA this summer. Ambitions were higher for trips and visits here and there but this is all I got. Almost enough, I'm a big fan of the British sculptor Anish Kapoor. Cloud Gate, or "the bean" had a great impact on all us small people moving in and around it. All in yellow t-shirts are my friends.
Read here about The bean
Early works of Anish Kapoor here
The water leak at my office job will be fixed this week, there will be a big hole in the street outside. Floor is opened, a noisy fan will dry the place out before they can lay a new.
Lucky I have other places to be, organizing an open day at Konstepidemin this Thursday. Almost 70 visitors from institutions and companies will be guided around different studios. Our hope is they will make use of the artists in the future, buying their work or their skills.
