Y is that Chicago art

The penultimate (25th) letter in the English-Latin alphabet is y. Why is that? All I know is y is that. (Yttrium has Y as its chemical symbol. Y is also a suffix.)

Chicago artists can artistically create art with y. They can interestingly and creatively produce such art. Such artists with mathematical inclinations can geometrically create such art with grids where graphic items intersect y-coordinates.

Unless you never move from a spot, you will intersect y-coordinates, which are usually north-south, Chicago streets. Other y-coordinates are longitudes. Cosmically, our planet Earth may have its own galactic y-coordinate. Our planet Earth may also have a dimensional y-coordinate.

Yes, ys do not always require yacht photos or photos of yams. If you can clearly photograph a live yak sitting in the middle of Michigan Avenue, it will be art. If your yo-yo photo causes yawns, most people will not consider it as art.

Major distance units in Chicago Bears football games are yards. Some people may consider a Bear halfback crossing the one yard line on the way to a touchdown as art. A Bears’, double-reverse play (Is there such a thing?) may be art.

Major, distance units on Chicago-land golf courses are yards. Yellow golf balls are uncommon, and may be art if photographers photograph them as holes-in-one. Photographs of golfers missing short putts because they have the yips may be art.

A Chicago fisherman catching yellow perch in Lake Michigan may be art. A Chicagoan bird watcher who photographs a yellow-shafted flicker may have created art. Yesterday, you may have inappropriately yelled, “Yoicks!” when you heard yodeling.
