 Jean-Luc Mylayne: The Millennium Park Chapel

(click on image to enlarge)

 

French artist Jean-Luc Mylayne, acclaimed for his enigmatic color photographs of birds, has created a temporary Chapel building with a 30-foot photo mural on its ceiling. In a hushed and darkened space, these brilliantly lit images show a sparrow, miraculously perched on the exact corner of a square roof, seemingly just over our heads. The pavilion accompanies a new exhibition of photographs by Mylayne at the Art Institute of Chicago (May 22–August 23, 111 S. Michigan Ave.) and The Arts Club of Chicago (May 22–August 13, 201 E. Ontario St.).
