The Floating Museum art collective will bring an inflatable sculpture to the front lawn of the Museum of Science and Industry this Friday, Sept. 10, and Saturday, Sept. 11.
“Founders” is a 25-foot-tall, 35-foot-wide nylon sculpture that includes depictions of Harold Washington, Jean Baptiste Point du Sable and du Sable’s Potawatomi wife, Kitihawa. A few years ago, it traveled along the Green Line to different locations near El stops.
A few weeks after its appearance at the MSI, 5700 S. Lake Shore Drive, it will return to Hyde Park, appearing on the Midway Plaisance as part of the Hyde Park Jazz Festival on Sept. 25 and 26.
