Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago Park District Superintendent Michael Kelly joined Yoko Ono, representatives of Project 120, the Consul General of Japan at Chicago, the University of Chicago and others to announce the installation of a permanent piece of public art work by Yoko Ono. The installation, SKY LANDING, will be installed in Garden of the Phoenix, located in Jackson Park. SKY LANDING will be Yoko Ono’s first permanent public art installation in the Americas, and is set to be open to the public in June of 2016. The idea for a site-specific piece emerged from Ono’s initial visit to the area during the cherry blossom tree installation in 2013.
