Jazzy Holidays

Found this jazzy mosaic statue at the Merchandise Mart. What I couldn't find was the standard little plaque, usually near a public art piece, that identifies the artist.

After posting this, a very nice viewer noted that the artist is Niki de Saint Phalle. With that big clue, I was able to also find out that this is her statue of Louis Armstrong.
