Chicago Art EXPO

When we went to the Art Expose one of the first sculptures I noticed was this one. It is a pot full of mermaids of all shapes and sizes. I wish I could have this for my house. This was really interesting to me because when I was younger I loved mermaids. Structurally, this piece is attention grabbing, as the mermaids overflow from their pot. The mermaids are piled high and thought little spaces you can see other mermaids underneath.

While I was walking through the gallery, I saw this tree and I really liked it. It’d be wonderful if an alum donated this to the school. There is a lot of bright orange which is what makes me think this is perfect for the school. Although there isn’t a lot of blue, it isn’t really necessary. On our spirit days and in general, people wear more blue than orange, this will remind them to wear orange. This will also serve as a symbol, illustrating us growing as students and staying connected. The tree is made of beads, yarn, and wire, and has been sold from a gallery in New York.

I also really enjoyed looking at this piece. It reminds me of icicles made of layers of melted white crayons. It’s really simple and elegant.

Also, for this field trip I would have lunch be at a later time in the day. Everything else was great! I had a lot of fun and I’d love to go again.
