CTA Arts-in-Transit: Damen Station [American Tourister, by Ron Baron]

American Tourister
By Ron Baron
2008 / Bronze
Location: CTA Station: Damen [Brown Line]
Under the CTA Arts-in-Transit program,
where CTA stands for Chicago Transit Authority..

The components of Ron Baron’s whimsical sculptures contain a history accumulated through years of use. Assembled from bronze castings of assorted vintage briefcases, suitcases and chairs culled from thrift stores and yard sales, the sculptures appear from a distance to be furniture or stacked luggage, but closer inspection rewards viewers with the discovery of embedded dioramas of travel scenes...

CTA Public Art..
