Skokie: Unique Sculpture5/6/2009 10:23 AM By Catherine T
Skokie, Illinois is located approximately forty minutes from downtown Chicago and has a special area dedicated to various kinds of sculpture. The Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park is home to over sixty interesting pieces, and if your client is looking for something out of the ordinary, the designs here can really help get you thinking outside the box. The subject matter of these statues is quite varied, but there are many abstract designs that can work well as a seed for ideas of your own. Bring a sketch pad or camera to capture the ones that you like so you can reflect on them later as well.
Admission into the park is free, and on its Website, you can download a self-guided tour packet that you can bring with you. The park runs for two miles and is divided into four different sections. Since it's on a long strip of land, you tend to come upon the statues one at a time, which can be wonderful for juxtaposing a variety of ideas and concepts. The statues can be a great help in terms of inspiring you to create a new logo or build a totally unique-looking page. Go when you have some time to enjoy these magnificent creations.
