The largest of the new pieces was installed Monday. "Here," a stainless steel piece standing about 14 feet tall and weighing 2.5 tons was put in place by park district employees over the course of a few hours. Artist Ruth Aizuss Migdal of Chicago was there to watch her work go up.

"It's exciting, isn't it?" she said, watching it being carefully placed atop its base. It took her a couple of months to create it, but she says that making art "really takes a lifetime."

The installations will be on display through mid-September.
