We have preempted our regularly scheduled Wednesday Monster post for a very special announcement:

Kurt Perschke‘s Red Ball Project has once again commandeered the cityscape of another defenseless metropolis…This time, the RRB is taking over Chicago!

Artist Kurt Perschke’s RedBall Project, an ongoing site-specific installation, has been traveling the globe, adopting cities as its canvas. From Barcelona to Busan to Sydney, the sculptural performance has garnered public, critical and media attention worldwide. From September 1 - 25, 2008, The RedBall Project Chicago sponsored by Target will migrate throughout Chicago’s unique architectural landscape and history—each location carefully considered by the artist. Site locations include Millennium Park, Spertus Museum, Hyde Park Art Center, IIT’s McCormick Tribune Campus Center, the Chicago Cultural Center, and more. The RedBall will also be found atop bridges and wedged into alleys, as Perschke’s decisions address not only architecture and urban space, but also anticipate the flow of people, traffic and the observer’s eye.

Follow one of the hypertext links above to track the RBP as it weaves through the Windy City.  And of course, we will be providing occasional updates throughout its run, so stay tuned!

We will now relinquish our control of your computer screen.


What’s your Red Rubber Ball?!
