Michigan Avenue Moose
Not much time today for words -- that is, the non-paying kind, but I did think to take my new pocket-sized digital camera on my expedition downtown yesterday. I walked from North Michigan Ave. back to Union Station, and noticed a thing or two I hadn't seen before. Such as this, on Michigan Ave. just south of the Tribune Tower:
It's what every city needs, a sculpture of a moose made of car bumpers. Turns out it was part of "Artists and Automobiles," an outdoor exhibit dreamed up by the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs. Interestingly, the press release linked above was from the summer of 2006. Maybe the moose proved so popular that he stayed.
