Jaume Plensa has a thing for faces

You might spot a familiar name in our Galleries and Museums page this week--the creepy face sculpture is by the Catalan artist Jaume Plensa, most famous (around here anyway) for the giant spitting video face monoliths in Millennium Park, officially titled the Crown Fountain. Regular Reader architecture contributor Lynn Becker has a nice photo essay on the Crown Fountain's construction. Tokyo Art Beat has an interview with Plensa.

Head III, cast aluminum sculpture by Jaume Plensa, part of a group show starting Wed 9/5, at Richard Gray | 875 N. Michigan #2503 | 312-642-8877
