Chicago Art Lions = Solar Electricity

Art Institute lions getting solar-powered wreaths

“The two bronze lions who guard the Art Institute of Chicago on Michigan Avenue will soon be wearing holiday wreaths…that will be solar-powered….
The wreaths….combin[ing] the look of traditional North American cranberry wreaths with the spirit of Buddhist and Taoist wishing trees….will be composed of a total of 2,011 spheres in various shades of red. And inside each sphere will be ‘a wish for the world in 2011’ written by Chicago-area schoolchildren.

The wreaths will be placed on the lions the day after Thanksgiving.”
