Editorial Review of Calder Flamingo Sculpture

If you're still around the 'hood and in the free-art market, head a bit east. Another famous public work of art awaits you at the Federal Center Plaza. "The Flamingo" by American sculptor Alexander Calder, was unveiled in 1974. If you ever need to play tour guide or pretentious art snob, here's your sound byte: The piece displays classic Calder characteristics; the artist was interested in enormous, heavy pieces that nonetheless displayed delicate balance reminiscent of a mobile. Okay, lesson over. Be sure to bring along your digital camera for this one: You can get some great, red-accented views of the Loop from under the flamingo.
