Sweater #57


At the north end of Lincoln Park by the north pond, a great view of the city emerges from the idyllic walking and biking paths.  In addition, there is a cafe/restaurant that sits just behind the viewer in the top image catering to those who are leisurely enjoying the park and many of its attractions.  While this vision of the park is reminiscent of picturesque movie scenes where abundant prosperity prevails, the reality is that there a quite a few folks in the immediate area struggle with finding stable affordable housing.  Sweater #57 was placed in prominent view of the cafe guests as I utilized the complimentary color scheme to attract attention–yes, finally consciously using art school methodology in practice!
