Chicago Loop Alliance unveils 'Races' public art installation

Written by

For the next year, a new piece of public art will be on display in the Gateway plaza. On Wednesday, the Chicago Loop Alliance unveiled "Races," its newest public art installation that portrays several abstract figures stacked and alongside each other “racing” into the Loop.

Illinois artist Bobby Scribner created the sculpture, which will be located between Wacker Drive and Lake Street on the State Street median. This latest public art installation is part of Chicago Loop Alliance's Loop Placemaking Initiative.

"Races" may not be as iconic as the Picasso, the Bean or Calder's "Flamingo," but it might inspire you to run a few miles when you hit the gym this evening.
