Michael D. Edens’ Lion Drawing at InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile

RAWRSOME! I’m pleased to announce that my charcoal “Lion” drawing is a permanent 5’x5′ textured, shimmering wall installation in all 23 elevator lobbies of the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile. Forbes.com did a full write-up about the artwork as part of the hotel’s 2013 renovation, however, the article’s author, Andrew Bender, didn’t include my name as the artist of the artwork. I contacted Andrew requesting a reference by name, but have not received a reply.

High quality canvas wrap or giclée prints of the Lion drawing are available through my ImageKind account.

Original charcoal artwork: Lion
Date Drawn: 2006
Dimensions (HxW): 14″ x 11″

The completed elevator lobby installation featuring my artwork. It’s an honor for me, and I think it looks neat in-person. The whole thing shimmers.
