Conversations: Here and Now in the Snow at Twilight

Conversations: Here and Now

I LOVE this sculpture.  I love that it is accessible to anyone and everyone; it is functional as well as beautiful; it fits beautifully into this park, near the playground but apart from it.

Designed by Indira Freitas Johnson and installed in May 2009 as a gift to the City of Evanston, it resides in Raymond Park at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Grove Street. The sculpture was commissioned by the family of Isabel Alvarez MacLean to honor her memory.

In the coming weeks, I hope to learn more about both Ms. Johnson and Ms. MacLean. When I do, I will share it here.

  1. I don’t live in Evanston but I work here and must drive past Chicago and Grove often — I have never seen this. It’s wonderful!!! The next time I find my self there I intend to pull over, park, and find it! Thanks, CityGirl!
