Weekend Passport: Artist Theo Jansen’s beach creatures
Each week global citizen Nari Safavi helps listeners plan their international weekend. You may not know the name Theo Jansen but you might have seen his walking “beach creatures.” The Dutch artist’s kinetic sculptures, known as “strandbeests” are powered by the wind. A free exhibit of his work is on display at the Chicago Cultural Center. Jansens joins us to talk about his work.
