Welcome to Chicago: new artwork at O’Hare

I’m a big fan of art at the airport. Anything that helps perk a place up.So I was pleased to see that there a two new pieces of public art at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.Steven Heyman’s sculptures, the square “Blue Beacon” and the circular “Orange Beacon” have been installed at International Terminal 5 and will welcome arriving passengers.The artwork should be hard to miss: each is 16 feet across and consists of painted silk panels that are lit from within.
