Death, Dreams & Heraldry 1999

The Chicago Cultural Center is Chicago’s one hundred year old former library and war memorial. Fascinated by the omnipresence of the Civil War Memorial and its ideals of male heroism, I countered with notions of private, intuitive experience. I was awarded a 2000 Illinois Visual Artists Fellowship for this project and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs subsequently purchased the glass Heraldic Emblems I-IV. Designed and fabricated specifically for the glass display cases of G.A.R. Memorial Hall, they remain on permanent display.
