The RedBall Project

September 3, 2008
Spertus

On September 3, the new Spertus building was a site for artist Kurt Perschke's RedBall Project, an ongoing, mobile sculptural performance that has taken place in such locations as Busan, Barcelona, and Sydney. The RedBall Project functions as a series of daily installations in which a 15-foot inflatable red sphere is embedded within a city's urban environment and provides a point of interaction with people on the street. At Spertus, the ball was lodged underneath the point of the architectural "skirt" of the building's dramatic glass fa├žade. The RedBall Project was sponsored by Target and is part of the City of Chicago's Public Art Program. Visit www.redballproject.com for further information.
