I was out and about during lunch the other day and was completely awestruck at the installation of the new art on Main Street. The statue has very realistic detail and is identical to the painting, except the background is missing! Along with the American Gothic couple, is a larger than life suitcase!
The statue is only on loan, previously on display in Chicago, perhaps on a journey across The United States.
If you have the time, take an afternoon to view it and the entire statue collection featured in the downtown area.
You can download an informational guide for the Statue collection on the DMA website, which is packed with details about the art! It's always a great day to take an art walk!
