This event has ended.

The show will include a large sculpture based on the scaffold used to hang the famous Chicago anarchists known as the Haymarket Martyrs (shown in the image above). Monument-like in scale, the sculpture is not an exact reproduction of the gallows but rather an outline of the structure that doubles as a worker’s break room. Viewers can access the platform using an industrial steel staircase, and once on top get a drink from a water dispenser.
