Brick House by Chakaia Booker a chicago icon on the 606

It's no wonder why my attraction to Chakaia Booker's sculpture on the Chicago 606 was so strong. As a corporate climate change fighter, I was immediately drawn to this beautiful piece of art that is made of recycled rubber tire material. It sends strong message of the capability to repurpose an environmentally unfriendly material and transforming it into a work of art that welcomely interrupts a casual stroll along the 606. The Brick House causes an irresistible urge to satisfy a passerby-er's curiosity, engage in dialogue with a friendly neighbor or climb as I saw many children the day I took these photos. Next time you are on a walk, jog, run, bike ride or rollerblading on the 606, I dare you to try to ignore Brick House!
