Valiant Struggle No. 11, a pig being held by a man, who is being held by a woman, all hanging from a crane that looked like a VW bug with a rather long tongue drew much attention. Not quite as much as WCD, but the colorful grouping held the interest of many.
Jia Shan Shi No. 46 wasn't quite so popular with the kids. One, decided that it looked like a big hunk of twisted up tin foil. He was not impressed. According to the brochure the artist, Zhan Wang has become world famous for his stainless steel copies of "scholars' rocks" found in classical Chinese gardens. I found the piece calming yet forceful.
So, while I missed out on meeting-up with the lovely lesbians I was scheduled to meet, I had a lovely time in the lovely Millennium Park. In addition to seeing wonderfully provocative pieces of art, I got to help some German women find "The Bean" or rather, Cloud Gate. Though they didn't speak much English we were able to understand each other enough...I escorted them to the sculpture and they were grateful.
I wasn't able to show the two Chinese women who asked (and no, I wasn't wearing a uniform, people just ask me stuff) about the location of a bathroom. I did point out park personnel whom I assured would be pleased to assist.
All-in-all, it was a pretty good Saturday afternoon in the park.
