The Watch Sculpture in Pioneer Court

Wondering around the centre of Chicago you come across many interesting sculptures and public works of art. Walking over the Michigan Avenue Bridge across the Chicago River I came across The Watch in Pioneer Court. These 16 brightly coloured Superheros are by Hebru Brantley, the 2013 Artist in Residence for Chicago Ideas Week. All around this area are very tall and iconic skyscrapers including the 35 floor Equitable Building which is in the background of this photograph. According to the artist these sculptures represent the troubles and triumphs that local students face in the Chicago neighbourhoods.
