This annual show takes place on the Navy Pier and is the world’s largest outdoor sculpture show. Over 8.2 million people walk through the venue.

With each project, Jim brings a unique sense of self-expression while captivating the viewer. “Art is the physical manifestation of an idea or event that calls forth an emotional response from the viewer. It speaks to us and evokes a chord deep within us. Good art challenges us, can make us feel righteous, move us, soothe us, heal us, and bring us peace.
