William J. O’Brien (b. 1975, Eastlake, Ohio, United States) lives and works in Chicago, Illinois, United States. Healing Window is a four-sided sculptural window made in steel and colorful glass. The work conveys a sense of contemplation and refuge, but also conversation—when the sun rises and falls, the insets of color will reflect on different places around the Spur.
