UPTOWN — Have you noticed anything different about the island at Racine Street and Broadway lately? 

A new sculpture, "Three Spheres of Self" by artist Jaci Willis, was recently installed in the triangular pedestrian island outside of the Riviera Theatre. It replaced the 12-foot aluminum sculpture that was placed there roughly a year ago.

The public art, which was made with stainless steel, was installed through the Chicago Sculpture Exhibit, a nonprofit designed to bring art to Chicago's neighborhoods. 

This is Uptown's second year participating in the program, according to Uptown's economic development organization, Uptown United.

Willis is a graduate of Bradley University in Peoria. She has also taught there, according to Uptown United. Her sculptures have been on display in Lincoln Park and Old Town.
