Estimated reading time: < 1 minute

Chicago decided to put a work by the American painter Kerry James Marshall up for sale at a Christie's auction in New York, with an expectation of surpassing US1TP4Q10 million. The mural, created for one of the city's public libraries, will be auctioned to finance the renovation of the library where it is displayed. The artist criticized the sale and told ARTnews that the city council would get a lot more if it auctioned the Picasso sculpture that hangs in Daley Plaza. Last year Marshall received $1 to create another public work for the city, today on the facade of a cultural center.
