Chicago, IL USA:
Chicago Tonight (Channel 11 - WTTW - Educational TV) captured the True Essence of The RedBall Experience on Tuesday Evening. The Station has a long history of favorably showing the Artist in his Domain and elaborating upon why the Piece(s) work in the(ir) various settings. The detailed 7 minute Interview with Kurt Perschke (who formerly lived in Chicago) that ran from approximately 7:25 - 7:32 PM showed where The RedBall previously been:
St. Louis &
with Footage, as well as its present TOUR DU CHICAGO with playful Segments showing Chicago-based People (whether they are residents, tourists or suburbanites) unleashing 'The Inner Child.' Multicultural is one way to describe it, as the Reaction to The Ball must have been as interesting as it has been to 'Chicago' as a collective.
"I love it!"
"People are getting a Big Kick out of it! Kurt explained. "It draws People in to The City. Their own Imagination is the Crux of the Piece."
RedBall captured the Attention of thousands of People (since September 1) ranging from Kids (of course) to Business Men in 'full-suits' on LaSalle Street.
Rebeccah Kardong, one of Kurt's Assistants (and also a Sculpturist) stated: "I think it's crazy to walk past it and ignore it."
Due to the sad Fact this is nearly the last Day of THE REDBALL EXPERIENCE, this Blog will be cut short by a few 100 Words in order to see it. After all, clocking those priceless Expressions is blissful for Writers and Photographers both. Material like this doesn't 'roll into Town' every Day.
