Artists Monument

Artists Monument - 11On Saturday, I attended the unveiling ceremony of Chicago’s newest modern art public installation by Tony Tasset. The Artists Monument is made of laser etched Plexiglas on shipping containers 8’x80’x8′. The monument (located in Grant Park at 9th & S. Michigan Avenue), a tribute to all artists, has 392,485 names ranging from Pablo Picasso to Andy Warhol to emerging artists with a single exhibition in alphabetical order. I even got interviewed for the nightly news! Did anybody see it air?! The reception took place at Niu B, where I indulged a bit too much in all the delicious food. I just couldn’t resist the sushi rolls. The Monument will be displayed here until at least the spring and then will find its permanent home at the UIC campus.

Now, lets talk about what I wore to the ceremony! Saturday was the perfect day to wear this Humble Chic NY chiffon sleeveless blouse because it was in the mid 60s! I love the subtle high-lowness of it along with the pocket details – which I’m ALL about! I’m also sooo excited to be collaborating with Humble Chic that with code LIKEIT you can get 15% off the entire site. How amazing is that?! I can’t wait to show you what else is in the works!
