Two great pieces of public art were unveiled almost simultaneously in Chicago fifty years ago. pretty much everyone knows about the Picasso in the Daley Center, but fewer know about the enduring Wall of Respect at 43rd and Langley.
Lee Bey hosts this week, and he welcomes Erin Harkey from the Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events and Jon Pounds of the Chicago Public Arts Group. They take us for a tour of fifty years of public art and a look ahead to some new exhibits and a few provocative questions, such as: when, if ever, is it appropriate to change or revise a long-established installation?
We like to think that our TV show is also a pretty good radio show. Put in the earbuds and listen to the show on Soundcloud.
