Other upcoming staff picks for August include:


Chicago Sculpture International

Chicago Sculpture International: "Landfills"


August 1 - September 26

Gallery I & II: Chicago Sculpture International: "Landfills"
"Landfills" promises to be a journey into the world of sculpture that is driven by collective consciousness and a never-ending source of individual inspiration. The exhibit means to present works whose materials have literally and physically metamorphosed from their original, fragmented street; meaning to become an object within a gallery context. Whether interpreted as landscape or lifestyle, beautiful or ugly, industrial or craft-made, intentionally designed or unearthed, the allegory of ideas and sculptures speaks about a culture of social disruption. There is a complimentary reception between 2 and 4 p.m., August 30 at the Museum.
