"S.O.S.! Sculpture Saves the Trees" with Margot McMahon

Ten sculptors, including Margot McMahon from Oak Park, worked with Chicago Sculpture International and the Chicago Park District to keep dead trees from being removed by sculpting them. McMahon suspended 13 flying song birds and perched an owl on her Jackson Park tree along Lake Shore Drive south of 57th Street. These sculptures are supported by Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and the City of Chicago to bring attention to the number of trees expected to die over the next few years.
