New Sculpture Arrives in Greektown: Invertadude
At the heart of #GreektownChicago sits a nearly 12 foot, 750lb concrete sculpture by artist Carrie Fischer. With the Willis Tower and West Loop skyscrapers in the background, this contemporary piece takes us back in time to when carving figures in stone was common. The sculpture strikes a casual unassuming pose on his head, as if the world doesn’t matter. The sculpture symbolizes how this year has challenged us to invert our thoughts to adapt to the changing times. See the sculpture for yourself at the corner of Halsted Street and Van Buren Street in Elysian Fields and watch the installation video linked here!
