October's At-A-Glance Photo Contest Zoomed in on IIT Sculpture

This month’s photo showed American artist George Segal’s 1986 sculpture, Man on a Bench, located on IIT’s main Chicago campus. To make the challenge more difficult, we revealed just the head and shoulders silhouetted against Perlstein Hall's west windows. The figure--cast in bronze and seated on a park bench--is both specific and deliberately vague. Dramatically lit on an early fall morning, he is especially mysterious-looking.

IIT commissioned the work for the centennial of Mies van der Rohe’s birth. To take a look for yourself, visit Perlstein Hall on the west side of State Street, just north of 33rd Street, on the main campus.

Congratulations to this month’s winner, who will receive a $20 gift certificate from Amazon.com. You can find out who won by checking our website at http://www.stc-chicago.org.
