Artist, curator, artist to sell ‘Heart’ sculpture for $5 million
A Chicago artist is selling a heart sculpture made of copper plates, a decorative sculpture for sale.
The sculpture, made by an artist from Chicago, is currently for sale at the Chicago Art Museum.
The artist told Chicago’s ABC affiliate WLS that the sculpture is a work of art, but that it is meant to be a gift.
The sculpture was first installed in Chicago’s Chinatown in the mid-1960s and is still on display.
The Chicago Art Festival said in a statement the sculpture was part of a series of works that include a number of different sculptures including a piece of bronze that was purchased from China.
