Chicago

What a treat to spend a few days with friends in Chicago. Not only is it such a vibrant place with beautiful buildings old and new, but there is public art all round the city. I was thrilled to find one of Jaume Plensa’s sculptures just round the corner from where we were staying. This is one of the series of sculptures.

We also visited Racine Art Museum and saw stunning work by Rosita Johanson, the late Canadian artist.

This is just one of the collection at the Racine Art Museum, all colourful embroidered narratives, using applique, hand and machine embroidery.
