Noon Edition

Sculptor Dessa Kirk

Dessa Kirk is a Chicago sculptor known for making large-scale lilies and depictions of women from Greek mythology. Her installations include "Daphne Garden" as part of Chicago's Art in the Garden series.

One of the themes in her work is finding the hidden beauty in ugliness, and she often makes her pieces from scraps of discarded Cadillac cars. Her sculptures are huge and rugged looking, ranging from raw to elegant.
