Magdalene – by Dessa Kirk

Location: Congress Triangle Garden

Congress Parkway, Grant Park

Dessa Kirk created the Magdalene sculpture specifically for its Congress Parkway site.
In the summertime, the sculpture becomes part of the surrounding garden with vines and flowers that fill up the skirt of her dress.

Dessa Kirk created this sculpture after the success of her nearby Daphne sculptures,
that were part of the Chicago Park District’s Art in the Garden exhibit in 2004.
The Daphne pieces have been permanently installed in the Northerly Island.
