Chicago Sculpture International brings sculpture to the community and promotes a community for sculpture and sculptors.


“Like the canary in the coal mine, birds are a first alert to climate change and potential danger. These dozen turquoise songbirds and one owl grace an elegant 35-foot elm decimated by dutch elm disease” - Margot McMahon.
“Flock is a visual dialogue between the owl that can attack song birds and songs birds that can attack owls exist within the Elm’s dead branches. Placing the sculptures in the tree brings attention to the 120,000 trees that are being removed from Chicago’s parks due to invasive species and warmer temperatures.”
“Flock is a daily reminder to reduce CO2 - ease your foot off the gas pedal please!”
