Subj: chicago public art cd-rom

a great cd-rom i got through work has photos, details, locations, and
lots of other stuff about chicago's public art. and guess who made
it...our own jeff millies and carrie sachay! jeff took the photos and
carrie's name is under just about every credit. it's a really great
souce for public art in chicago...there is LOTS of stuff i never knew we
had. good job, guys! i highly recommend it as a tool for seeing
chicago's public art, but we got it because my boss knows mike lash
(head of percent-for-art) so i don't know how to get it otherwise. but
maybe jeff and/or carrie can write in to the art digest and let people
know. it sure is groovy!--laura

Subj: Funny art story


NEW YORK CITY, NY-- According to THE WASHINGTON POST, artist Jack Dowd
has assured city officials that the dog in his statue MAN & HIS DOG will
eventually have a leash. The life size bronze statue, which depicts a
man sitting on a bench beside his dog, will be unveiled Tompkins Square
Park next month.

The Post reports that because Parks Department officials have begun
aggressively enforcing the leash law, they were concerned when they saw
the dog without a leash in photographs of the statue.

However, according to the Post, Dowd says had always intended the dog to
have a leash. but he left it off when the statue was on display in
galleries in Florida and Hawaii because he feared vandals would damage
it. He has made adjustments in the bronze leash to make it more damage

"There's a famous statue of a German Shepherd in Central Park. I don't
remember who the dog is, all I know is its famous, its really beautiful,
and it DOES NOT have a leash anywhere--the dog stands guard on top of a
rock," dog painter Irene Dogmatic, whose portraits have included Glenn
Close's Wheaton terrier, Petey and Donna Tartt's pug, Pongo, told Arts

"I am thinking that perhaps Giuliani will make dog statuary in New York
City sort of like naked male statuary in the past, but rather than a fig
leaf strategically placed below the waist, the dogs will feature a leash
strategically placed around the neck," she added.
