See you later giant eyeball...

Tony Tassett's massive outdoor sculpture installation 'Eye and Cardinals' has finally come down.  Despite the project's official ending in October, the giant eyeball was allowed to remain in it's summer home in Pritzker Park for an additional month.  As much as we enjoyed the sculpture in situ, we were equally enamored by the surreal tableaux created by it's pieces secured on trailers and trucks driving up State Street.

  1. Wow! Is that the iris on trailer? Wouldn't it be crazy if the iris' aperture actually changed size according to the light?
