Millenium Park Anish Kapoor, Jaume Plensa Chicago, IL, USA 2004

Chicago’s recent addition to its venerable collection of urban public spaces is the hugely popular twentyfour-and-a-half acre Millenium Park, built on a former rail yard just to the north of the Art Institute. Essentially a green roof on top of a sunken parking garage, the site is a complex amalgamation of gardens, plazas, and entertainment spots. It hosts an ambitious group of newly commissioned sculpture as well as the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, an outdoor band shell designed by Los Angeles architect Frank Gehry. At the park’s western edge lie the two most impressive new works of public art, both privately funded through the extensive efforts of John H. Bryan, ex-chairman of Sara Lee Corporation, the former food conglomerate. At the center of the AT&T Plaza rests Anish Kapoor’s stainless steel Cloud Gate, which required special reinforcement of the park’s subterranean structure to support its 110-ton weight. Dubbed “the Bean” while it remained untitled during installation (a name that has since stuck, much to the artist’s apparent chagrin), its kidney-shaped form and smoothly polished surface create fantastic optical effects as it reflects the famous skyline of Chicago’s nearby Loop. Visitors are able to walk through its twelve-foothigh aperture at center, where, underneath the work’s hulking form, they can gaze up at a deeply concave omphalos (navel), which provides additional optical effects. The technologically innovative fountain by the Spanish artist Jaume Plensa, which lies to the south of Kapoor’s sculpture, was funded by the local Crown family. Using the history of public waterworks as his inspiration – particularly gargoyles, whose visages were historically used to decorate waterspouts – Plensa designed two fifty-foot monoliths of glass blocks to face each other across a slick plaza of black granite. The towers house screens made of LED light systems – essentially monumental televisions – which display the faces of 1,000 representative Chicagoans, each for five minutes at a time. For one minute each the subjects are also shown to purse their lips, and, during seasonal months, a stream of water is spewed out from their electronic mouths onto the plaza floor. 1. 2.

Storm King Art Center Andy Goldsworthy, Maya Lin, Isamu Noguchi, Richard Serra Mountainville, NY, USA 1978–2008

Storm King Art Center was founded in 1960 by businessmen Ralph E. Ogden and H. Peter Stern. Since that time it has grown into a world-class collection of twentieth and twentyfirst century sculpture installed in 500 acres of landscaped lawns, hills, fields and woodlands. The grounds are surrounded in the distance by the Hudson Highlands, a range of low-lying mountains, which provide a dramatic backdrop of sky and land for the works. Richard Serra’s Schunnemunk Fork (1990–91) comprises four giant weathering steel plates inserted into the slopes of a ten-acre field. It draws your attention to the nearby mountain and to the topography of the site. Andy Goldsworthy’s Storm King Wall (1997–98) is another piece in which the artwork and the landscape are literally woven together. The 2,278-foot-long serpentine dry stone wall winds through a line of trees, dips into a pond and heads up a hill to reach the edge of the property. In addition to site-specific artworks, much of the land is ‘art-specific’, having been reconfigured to create the best possible settings for the sculptures. Isamu Noguchi’s ninepiece, 40-ton granite sculpture, Momo Taro (1977–78), is one example. Its dramatic setting on a high mound on a hill was created specifically for it. Similarly, echoing ocean waves, Maya Lin’s vast Wavefield comprises seven mounds of undulating, grass-covered earthern mounds. These are but a few examples from the permanent collection, which features over 100 sculptures by an international cast of prominent artists, including Magdalena Abakanowicz Alexander Calder, Roy Lichtenstein.
