Very rarely will any adult go an entire day without using prepositions when speaking. (This is in reference to the English language.) When writing about Chicago art, proper placement of prepositions will improve sentences’ structures.
- Indian Bowman along Michigan Avenue
- Chicago Bears Championship Buttons for the 1985 NFL Season
- Buckingham Fountain Water in Operation
- Warning Signs on Stone
- New, Metallic Bench Outside
To properly place prepositions when referring to Chicago art, speakers and writers should consider whether the art is atop, next to or under other art. Some framed photos may be aboard boats, inadequately attached to bulkheads where they could fall into Lake Michigan during strong windstorms. Rather than placing artistic, marine photos on boats where they are subject to Mother Nature’s caprices, boaters should keep these artworks on land inside stable buildings.
Ivan Mestrovic sculpted this photo of a native American shooting an arrow. (The bow and arrow are missing.) A bronze statue, the City of Chicago installed this in 1928. This statue’s location is in downtown Chicago at South Michigan Avenue and Congress Parkway. Honoring the American Indian, this statue is realistic and has dynamic poses for both Indian and horse
Chicago Bears NFL Champions Buttons
These buttons are sports memorabilia/collectibles honoring the 1985 Chicago Bears. In that year, the Chicago Bears became the NFL’s, NFC Champions, and they won the Super Bowl. The Bears had Mike Ditka as its coach, Jim McMahon as quarterback, William “The Refrigerator” Perry as a guard and Walter Payton as a tight end.
This is a triptych of Chicago’s, famous Buckingham Fountain. In 1927, Kate Buckingham commissioned this fountain’s construction to honor her brother Clarence. A fountain at Versailles, France is the basis for this fountains design. In late spring, Chicago maintenance workers turn on the water. At night during the summer and autumn, color lights make the water sparkle and glow.
No Diving No Swimming Signs
Along Chicago’s South Shore Drive near 69the Street an the lakefront, these signs warn pedestrians not to dive or swim in Lake Michigan. In this area are many, jagged boulders and the water depth is shallow. These signs are in the Symbolism Style.
Ornate Metallic Bench
This metallic bench is somewhat new; Chicago Park District, maintenance personnel installed it on Jackson Park Golf Course near the 18th hole. Its legs, back and seat consists of curvy, metallic bars. This bench probably has the Art Deco style.
