Cee is hosting the Photographing Public Art Challenge this week and featuring some interesting art finds in Oregon. I didn’t go quite so far afield for these shots, just a 30-minute drive up the road to the Northshore Sculpture Park in Skokie.
The Gandhi Memorial Sculpture is actually located in Heritage Park which adjoins the Northshore Sculpture Park. I thought I’d photographed the name of the artist but apparently not. I tried Google to see if I could find it but none of the articles that I read mentioned his or her name.
The parkway, that runs parallel with the north branch of the Chicago River and McCormick Boulevard, makes a pleasant walk and the sculptures give it an added interest. It’s been a few years since we were over this way so there were one or two new pieces to see, along with some familiar ones.
Shown here are just a few of the sculptures on view to the public in the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park here in Illinois.
