Abstract: Astronomy Park is designed to be a 91-acre educational park and observatory on Chicago's Northerly Island in which all citizens are able to relax, observe, and discover the sky. The Park entrance is adjacent to the Adler Planetarium. Wild Ricing Moon and the Ojibwe; Colorado Gateway (Mother Earth/Father Sky) and the Utes, are two monumental public sculptures inspired by the Native American's observations of the night sky.
