Gapers Block

There's a new art installation in the front plaza of the Museum of Contemporary Art. Called "Short Cut", it's supposed to look like a traffic accident, and is part of the museum's new show "Universal Experience: Art, Life and the Tourist's Eye," which begins Feb. 12. The Chicago Tribune wrote a short blurb about the artwork, with the headline "How to create a gapers' block." So of course we GOTTA link to it.
