On Saturday June 25, a new sculpture is coming to the south end of Grant Park. Sited in the skate park just south of the 11th Street pedestrian overpass, the new 15 foot tall Buddha sculpture will be not just be the park's newest art installation, but also the latest skatable feature. The edges of the wood sculpture are to be lined with steel angle irons allowing for patrons of the skate park to grind alongside the object.
