Another highlight is the street sculpture that sits right in the middle of the gallery called (T)HUG LIFE(?). Created by longtime Chicago artists Chris Silva, Thor, Brooks Golden, Nick Adam and others, this gigantic installation is made up entirely of found objects like doors, windows, and even a model house, which are mostly collaged together and painted on with various oddball characters. It looks like a mini city in itself. One side even features a red light district with a nude female standing behind shutters as a pervy man looks on. It’s a bizarre collective piece that tells stories at every angle.
