Our local ABC channel is reporting that the city has filed a public nuisance lawsuit aimed at removing the blue sculpture that towers over Armitage Avenue in Lincoln Park. According to the ABC 7 report:
Depending on how you see Big Blue, it is either a gorgeous art object beautifying a wealthy section of Lincoln Park, or it is an obnoxious eyesore dragging down property values. City attorneys have another name for it: a public nuisance – and they have filed suit against the owner to bring it within code. The 30-foot tall object still towers over the front yard at Burling and Armitage, and part of it hangs over the sidewalk.

The city’s next target should be Charlie Trotter’s grotesquely inappropriate canopy and planters.
