Pulaski Day is cool. But what on earth is that pipe-thing sticking out of the wall?

The pipe thing sticking out of the wall is a sculpture by local artist Jerzy Kenar; he gave the sculpture to the school as a gift. His wood gallery is across the street from my old apartment on Wolcott (he also did the angel at the Angel’s Barn on the corner of Wolcott and Augusta). Look for the giant ladder, called “Waiting for an Angel” on top of his gallery….his work is also all over the international terminal at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport.

Happy Pulaski Day
Chicagoist was just commenting, it seems, about how President’s Day is one of those half-holidays where nothing happens really, but if you’re lucky you get the day off. Well, same with Pulaski Day. Except you have an even slimmer chance of getting the…
