Glassell Park is now home to a second outdoor art installation, this one by June Diamond. Diamond is an artist at work right now creating an enormous set of vertical blinds that are being installed on the outside of a home in Glassell Park. The blinds cover the entire facade of the house--top to bottom.
"The blinds will be opened and closed throughout six weeks... or partially open and partially closed... or peek-a-boo open... or slats-open-but-blinds-closed... or any number of combinations while it is up. What does it all mean? Maybe something about curb appeal? Memory? Privacy?"
This installation is part of the Terrain Biennial. Terrain was started by an artist, Sabina Ott, at her home in Oak Park, Illinois.
