American Tourister

Ron Baron's “American Tourister" (bronze; 2008) are whimsical sculptures at Chicago's Damen station (CTA Brown line) that will take travelers by surprise.

Assembled from bronze castings of assorted vintage briefcases, suitcases and chairs culled from thrift stores and yard sales, the sculptures appear from a distance to be furniture or stacked luggage, but closer inspection rewards viewers with the discovery of embedded dioramas of travel scenes.
