About Cica Friedman:
Cica was born in 1957 in Serbia, former Yugoslavia. After graduating University of Belgrade (oriental languages) in 1980, she moved to Chicago. Her husband is an art dealer and she has been working in his gallery for the past 27 years.
Cica’s first artistic expression was B/W photography. To enhance her skill in that field she took classes at the SAIC. After that she started to develop her negatives in a dark room. The media that she projected were: paper, metal, fabric etc. Those images were collaged with scrap metal. She has exhibited with Flatfile Gallery for several years.
About her design:
She designed the golf ball with streets, city blocks, the river, parks and the lake based on a Chicago city map. The center of the first image is the intersection of Clark and Randolph. The Marina Towers, The Trump Tower, 333 West Wacker Drive, The Merchandize Mart and The State of Illinois Building should be easy to identify. On the right side is Millenium Park. The center of the second image is the intersection of State and Chicago. The Ferris Wheel, The MCA and Rush Street should also be easy to identify. Lake Michigan with Lake Shore Drive is on the left, and the north branch of the Chicago River is on the right side.
She plans to use black, white, yellow, red, blue and green polyurethane based enamel paint on the project.
