Miró’s Chicago, also known as The Sun, The Moon and One Star and its nickname “Miss Chicago," is a sculpture made of steel, concrete, bronze, wire mesh and ceramic tile. This sculpture faces another iconic sculpture of the city, the Chicago Picasso. These two sculptures were originally supposed to be installed in the same year, but due to lack of funding, Miró’s Chicago was not installed until 1981. It was unveiled by Jane Byrne, Chicago’s first female mayor. The model for the sculpture can be seen at the Art Institute of Chicago.
