Shark Bench



Shark Bench, 1996
Barry Hehemann
Cermak Road and Indiana Avenue

            Located near McCormick Place and John Henry’s Arris, a large-scale work of aluminum beams painted yellow, Barry Hehemann’s Shark Bench demonstrates his interest in using industrial materials, such as cast concrete and steel, to create unusual but functional benches. Hehemann also contributed two works, A Throne for ‘King’ and A Throne for ‘King’ II to the Bronzeville Benches project, a series of benches by various artists celebrating Bronzeville’s history and located along the restored Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, between 25th and 35th Streets.
