Sweet new sculpture

This marvelous sculpture has just appeared in Lincoln Park.  It’s a life-size buffalo that you can see from your car when you’re stuck on Cannon Drive waiting for the light to change near the nature museum.  I walked by the other day to get a closer look.  The thing is magnificent—so true to life, yet appealing as art because of the sculptor’s masterful use of oxidized steel.

The artist is Chris Williams of Massachusetts.  The piece was made in 1999 for a couple who subsequently bequeathed it to the Notebaert.  It’s an instant hit that you just have to touch.
