On June 1, 2012, a new sculpture was installed in the Young Artists’ Gallery of the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park. The art students of Barbara Wismer at Niles West High School in Skokie, IL. created individual glazed ceramic sculptures. These multi-colored organic forms then were placed vertically on poles to create the totem-like sculptures on public display in Section III of the Park.
Section III is located along McCormick Blvd between Oakton and Howard Sts.
The pieces were installed by Barbara and Shaun Wismer, Sheila Oettinger, Barbara Goldsmith, Joseph Folise, Patrick Folise and Gerry Holmes.
