Above and Beyond


The National Veteran's Art Museum in Chicago has an unusual art exhibit. 


When visitors first enter the museum, they will hear a sound similar to wind chimes. This sound is created by more than 58,000 Dog Tags which have been suspended from fine lines, 1 inch apart, from the ceiling of the two-story atrium.


These Dog Tags represent the men and women who died in the Vietnam War. This 10 ft x 40 ft sculpture was designed by Ned Broderick and Richard Stein.

Isn't that a brilliant installation! So simple yet profound and moving. I'd love to see it in person some day.
