Midway Gardens Sprite with Crossed Arms
Midway Gardens (1913) was an indoor-outdoor entertainment complex on Chicago's south side and an extraordinary achievement for Frank Lloyd Wright. He personally designed all elements including murals, tableware, and furniture. Wright envisioned several freestanding sculptures for the gardens. Wright designed and had Alfonso Iannelli execute geometric sculptures called "Sprites." This "Sprite with Crossed Arms" is representative of one of the three that adorned the Gardens which were salvaged before the premature and unfortunate demise of this lost treasure in 1929.
