The final piece of artist Tony Tasset's eyeball is now in place along State Street.

The eye is a 30-foot tall piece of art modeled after the creator's own eye.

The Oak Park native explains that he likes to create art that gets a reaction out of people-- and there's no doubt his sculpture in Pritzker Park, located at State and Van Buren, is raising a few eyebrows.

The sculpture will officially be unveiled July 7th.
