More Works of Metal

School's out and Lilly reported attending a water-balloon fight at a friend's house today, followed by swimming at a nearby outdoor pool. Ann took up the task, after the heat of the day was wearing off, of learning to ride a bike without training wheels. It can hardly be much more summer than all that, especially considering that today was the third day in a row over 90° F. But tomorrow will be 20° cooler. Such are Northern summers.

More from the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park. This is the painted steel "Revival," backed in this shot by one of the tall willows near the banks of the North Shore Channel. Sculptor: Joseph Eisenhauer of North Carolina.

"Baile de Alacrán," a work of galvanized steel by Ted Garner, who is this fellow, also known as Ted Sitting Crow Garner, of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

"Inside Plant," a welded steel work by Andy Zimmermann, originally from West Virginia.

This is what the work looks like, looking up from where Lilly was standing.
