"Loop Art - Calder's "Flamingo"" Architecture & Public Art (outdoor) Tip by Hopkid
Architecture & Public Art (outdoor), Chicago: 77 reviews and 112 photos
Commissioned by the U.S. General Services Administration through its Art-in-Architecture program and installed in 1974, is an abstract iron sculpture that has been painted red. The most stunning part of the sculpture, to this humble observer, is the contrast of the red sculpture to that of the dark/black windows/facade of the many buildings that share its location in Federal Center Plaza. Also the rounded figure is another contrast to the perpendicular linearity of the building facades. It's fun to walk right up to it and imagine climbing on it, which is actually not at all easy to do.
Located at Federal Center Plaza at the corner of Dearbonr and Adams Streets
