Doing is winning.

October 12, 2017

Kind of appropriate for the season—the baseball post-season. Walked by the mighty bat after passing by it for decades. It's a huge sculpture in the West Loop hood of Chicago, designed by Claes Oldenburg. 

 

The plaque at the base says "Oldenburg selected the baseball bat as an emblem of Chicago's ambition and vigor. The sculpture's verticality echoes the city's dramatic skyline, while its form and scale cleverly allude to more traditional civic monuments, such as obelisks and memorial columns."

 

My takeaway? Projects big and small require ambition and vigor. They also need good planning, negotiating, budgeting, communicating and scheduling. The Batcolumn, like all public art, is an awesome example of how something gets done despite the hurdles.
