Giant Origami Crane Represents Peace In The New Year, Creator Says

Story by Victoria Johnson, via DNAinfo Chicago:

LOGAN SQUARE — Logan Boulevard "Christmas House," meet your match — a 10-foot tall origami crane.

The lights of the holiday favorite Christmas House at Logan Boulevard and Washtenaw Avenue may have gone dark over the weekend, but passersby will now be treated to a special sight across the boulevards and a block west: a 10-foot "origami" crane made of two-by-fours and bed sheets.

Sima Cunningham, a 23-year-old musician who lives at the house off Fairfield Avenue and Logan Boulevard, built the crane with two of her friends on sort of a whim.
