Miró’s Chicago

Art on the streets.

Exploring the heart of the city, just a short distance from the Daley Centre, in a small side street between the towering Temple Building and the Cook County Administration Building, is an unknown sculpture, made of steel, wire mesh, concrete, bronze and ceramic tile, by the Catalan artist Joan Miró. Throughout its history the city has aspired to display a huge variety of urban art in the open air so that both visitors and locals can enjoy walking around the city unaware of what they might around the next corner. This sculpture is one of those surprises. Although it is popularly known as Miró’s Chicago, it was originally called The Sun, The Moon and One Star as the sun is represented on its base, the moon by its central sphere, and the star is represented by the trident at the top whose tines look like rays of light.
