Artists and Automobiles

Artists and Automobiles

In 2006, Allstate Insurance Company sponsored the Artists and Automobiles exhibit in honor of the company’s 75th anniversary. The Public Art Program of the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs partnered with the Chicago Park District to organize this show which highlighted the work of five artists. Allstate provided old car parts that the sculptors used to create the artworks. This is a garden feature composed of entwined mufflers, tailpipes, and headlights made by Lucy Slivinski.

This post is for A TO Z Challenge, where there will be a post every day in April except Sundays corresponding to each letter of the alphabet.

THEME: "In and around Chicago" - All the pictures in this series are monuments, sculptures and fountains shot at various parks in Chicago. View the entire pictures in this sequence here.

  3. Signalling at every turn should be drilled into the minds of new drivers so that by constant practice, this becomes an instinct. Seasoned drivers likewise should never forget this most basic of all driving lesson Andy1st..
