Yoko Ono sculpture unveiled at Chicago's Jackson Park

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago is home to the latest project by artist and musician Yoko Ono. She unveiled her sculpture called "Skylanding" in Jackson Park on the city's South Side on Monday.

The work is Ono's first permanent public installation in the United States. It features 12 steel lotus petals that emerge from the ground. Ono calls it a place where the sky and earth meet, coming together to create a future of peace and harmony.

"We are now bathing in the light of dawn standing in the heaven we have created together on this planet and we're still creating every day, busy, busy, busy, and we love it," Ono said.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel thanked Ono for enriching the lives of Chicagoans as well as visitors to the city.
