This exhibition included a selection of artwork from various satellite locations including libraries, police stations and other public buildings. Highlights of the installation include many maquettes (models) including Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate, Jacob Lawrence’s mosaic, Events in the Life of Harold Washington and Mary Brogger’s Haymarket Memorial. The exhibition will also feature a chair and ottoman from Suite Home Chicago and a mural from the Legler Branch Library by Kerry James Marshall. The mural celebrates the library as a source of mystery and wonder.
