Description

Abstract wall sculpture made from welded bronze, copper and steel gasket forms.
On plaque: β€œTed Gall/View from McCormick/Gift of/Federal-Mogul Corporation/2010”
The sculpture was created during the 1970s and was located in the Fel-Pro building on McCormick Boulevard in Skokie for 25 years. Originally, the sculpture hung on the outer west wall of the library, but it was damaged in 2012 when vandals attempted to remove copper tubing from the piece. After returning from being repaired by the artist the sculpture was relocated to the South Courtyard.

Theodore (Ted) Gall studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and worked for twenty years as the artist in residence at Fel-Pro, an automotive gasket manufacturer in Skokie before moving to California. The Library owns another of his sculptures, β€œContinued Dialog.”
