Calder's Flamingo (1973) in Chicago's Federal Plaza

"I love red so much that I almost want to paint everything red."
- Alexander Calder as quoted in The Artist's Voice: Talks with Seventeen Modern Artists, by Katharine Kuh, page 41

There was some construction going on when I photographed this August 2010.
In this 2015 version, I've de-emphasised the color saturation of the construction materials.

Even Calder's signage is playful
