Description

Mirо’s Chicago (originally called The Sun, the Moon and One Star) is a sculpture by Joan Miró. It is 39 feet (12 m) tall, and is made of steel, wire mesh, concrete, bronze, and ceramic tile. In 1969 the Brunswick Corporation commissioned a design from Mirо for this sculpture, but they decided not to proceed due to the costs. This bronze model of Mirо’s Chicago is in the Milwaukee Art Museum collection. In 1979 the first female Mayor of Chicago, Jane Byrne, agreed to find funds for the sculpture assuming that another 50% could be found elsewhere.
