Video: Hebru Brantley Unleashes ‘The Watch’ on Michigan Ave.

Directed by Nick Brazinsky

This past Saturday night/Sunday morning, storied Chicago artist Hebru Brantley debuted his new installation, The Watch, at 401 N. Michigan Avenue. The exhibit, which stands in the same location as where the giant Marilyn Monroe once loomed, is part of Hebru’s contribution to Chicago Ideas Week, and features his signature Fly Boys and Fly Girls. But this time, instead of one or two, he has a whole army of them. A neighborhood, so to speak.

Hebru is the artist in residence for this year’s Chicago Ideas Week, so be sure to stop by 401 N. Michigan to check out this exhibit. It’s truly thought-provoking and next level.
