|This sculpture is in front of the Harold Washington Social Security Administration Building near downtown Chicago. Oldenburg claims he saw the bat as a symbol of Chicago's ambition and vigor although in other cases his works don't seem to be emblematic of a place--a clothespin for Philadelphia? |
Corten steel painted gray with a lacy openwork pattern
