A RETROSPECTIVE VIEW OF THE PATHWAY  

Polk Bros Park at Navy Pier

Free and open to the public! Join us in Polk Bros Park for this public art installation’s daily “eruptions,” now through October 1!.

Navy Pier welcomes a new public art installation, “A retrospective view of the pathway” by Roger Hiorns – courtesy of Luhring Augustine, New York – in Polk Bros Park. The interactive piece is comprised of large-scale stainless steel tanks, a compressor, and foam, presenting the idea of continuous change in a joyous and ebullient manner. Mondays-Fridays at noon and Saturdays and Sundays at noon and 4 p.m., the sculpture will produce giant foam clusters, which will be shaped by the wind and spread across the landscape. In this way, the artist engages with the surroundings and blurs the lines between where the city begins and the art ends. The installation will be on view through EXPO CHICAGO (September 13 – 17, 2017) with its conclusion on October 1.
