A giant Block I was installed at O’Hare today

Next time you’re in Terminal 3 at O’Hare, check out the 7 feet x 6 feet LED-illuminated Block I sculpture that was installed this morning.

According to the news release, the sculpture is meant to “celebrate the university’s presence in Chicago,” and it is the result of a collaboration between U of I, the Chicago Department of Aviation, and Clear Channel Airports.
