Evanston’s newest public sculpture went on display this week under the Union Pacific tracks at the intersection of Emerson Street, Ridge Avenue and Green Bay Road.
It’s called “Stitch” and Australian artist Warren Langley was in town to install it this week. He says the design is meant to represent the juncture of four very distinct parts of town at the intersection.
The city’s cultural arts coordinator, Jennifer Lasik, says you should make a point to drive by at night when the sculpture is all lit up — “very very cool” then, she says.
The $89,000 sculpture was approved just over a year ago by the City Council as part of a roadway improvement project for portions of Green Bay Road and Emerson Street.
