Reparking








When I went downtown to visit the Jun Kaneko exhibit I was going to wander over to the lake and decided to pedestrian bridge. I was shocked to find that Maggie Daley Park is under construction and although it gave me some ideas for interior structure for some of my recent forms, I must lament the fact that a perfectly respectable park is being rebuilt instead of the city focusing on the numerous other issues.

Oh, Chicago.

Tanukis and Dangos















Images of the Tanukis and Dangos at the Millenium Park Boeing Galleries. Unfortunately the Jun Kaneko exhibition I was so excited to see has been closed off with crowd fencing and I haven't been brave enough to sneak in during the day. This at least gives you an idea of what the space looks like.

Works by the very talented Paul Scott, who is defying the institutional boundaries between craft, design, and fine art in a variety of ways. Scott has produced functional and installation works along with teaching and writing. A contemporary icon of appropriating classic and historical ceramic forms and patterns into provocative pieces, he comments on the passing of old traditions and the reformation of the industrial landscape.
