Half Stepping Hot Stepper and Untitled

Open Daily | Compass Rose | Free

In partnership with EXPO Chicago presented by Navy Pier

Two sculptures by American artist Eddie Martinez will be installed outside at Navy Pier. Known primarily for his large canvases, Martinez has been making sculptures for over a decade. As with his paintings, Martinez’s sculptures are dynamic, colorful and bold explorations of abstract shape, line and form. The eclectic range of materials he employs in his ‘assemblages’ such as plaster, wood, plastic and rubber (not to mention lobster traps, buoys, and a swimming pool ladder) reach their apotheosis in exquisitely cast bronzes. Half Stepping Hot Stepper, enamel and spray paint on bronze, and Untitled, oil paint and enamel on bronze, are at once energetic and exuberant, and equally filled with a sense of melancholy and nostalgia.

EXPOCHGO IN/SITU OUTSIDE PROGRAM
Engaging the city’s long legacy of pioneering public art, EXPO CHICAGO presents major initiatives presented in collaboration with the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), the Chicago Park District, and Navy Pier to highlight work by internationally recognized artists.
