Look closer. Think harder. Choose the sound argument over the clever one.

Chicago Sight: Midway's Bird

Chicago's Midway Airport has my favorite work of art.

It's not easy to tell from the pictures. A large array of wires hangs from the ceiling. Little toys (like old hot-wheels cars) attached to each wire form the bird's shape in 3-D, and its shadow below.


(Does explaining art ruin it? I hope not.)
