Niki in the Garden


On a recent trip to Chicago I went see “Niki in the Garden“, a show by Niki de Saint Phalle, at the Garfield Park Conservatory with my Mom. Sculptures covered with ceramic mosaics, mirrors, glass, and semi-precious stones depict brilliantly colored animals, mythical creatures, “Nanas”, sports figures, and more. The Niki in the Garden show runs through October 31, 2007. If you are in Chicago this fall definitely check it out.
