Yost, who studied sculpture at the Art Institute of Chicago and Northern Illinois University, has sculptures displayed throughout Illinois, Wisconsin, and Tennessee. He claims “…Got those Ole Penetrat’n Chicago Blues” is a “georganimetric” concept, a claim that sounds bazaar at first yet becomes surprisingly clear upon viewing the sculpture.

The work embodies both geometric and organic elements, a combination that makes it an aesthetic treasure for green spaces. The wavy, organic shapes juxtapose with the harder edged form and complement each other. “…Got those Ole” is a piece that aches for viewer interaction, resting on its plot like a puzzle with no single solution the piece is set in motion by the viewer.
