|Bob took this update photo last week. The Chevron sculpture by artist John Henry is conspicuously missing. However, reports are it will be back after some modification to the property.|

We've been supportive of the infamous Lincoln Park art installation at Burling and Armitage. The once dilapidated corner on a not-so gorgeous stretch of Armitage has been brought to life with much private investment. In general, we love the many public and semi-private art pieces that dot the city.
DNAinfo Lincoln Park had a good story in June on the controversy.
As politically controversial as this statement may be... we are for art! In all seriousness, I just can't see this as a nuisance worth a legal fight that takes up city resources. The corner lot position of the piece does not affect other properties along the block (for example, it doesn't appear to block a view or cast a permanent shadow on an adjacent house).
