The City of Evanston and artist Jill King-Wynn invite you to the unveiling of "Evanston Odyssey," a permanent sculptural installation commissioned by the City of Evanston - Public Art/Exhibitions and created by local artist Jill King-Wynn. The reception will take place on Thursday, July 20, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave. The installation is displayed in the building's south stairwell.
Artist Jill King-Wynn will speak about her passion and process while creating "Evanston Odyssey." Formed by stretching an opaque fabric over a linear steel construction, "Evanston Odyssey" looks like fantastical botanical drawings, swirling galaxies or lit up celestial cloud formations that have come to life in three dimensions. King's organic artworks highlight the glory and intricacy of the natural world and represents the cycles of life through the power of growth and transformation.
