Art Institute Lions go Mod for Christmas

In celebration of the opening of the Renzo Piano designed Modern Wing earlier this year, the 18th annual holiday wreathing of the Art Institute's twin bronze lions has taken a contemporary turn.
Instead of the traditional evergreen wreaths, this year's were designed Yves Behar out of multi-colored aluminum leaves. On December 16, they'll be replaced by the traditional evergreen wreaths, and Behar's leaves distributed to Chicago kids to use for their own home decorations. (See a small slideshow of pics on Behar's fuseproject website here.)
