The city that launched America's Cows on Parade - plays host to Statue Stories Chicago, an extraordinary new public art intervention. Statue Stories Chicago is an innovative, free city-wide arts project that gives voice to some of Chicago's most important statues and sculptures. From Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln Park to the lions guarding the Art Institute of Chicago, from the eloquent Paul Lawrence Dunbar to the giant Picasso, each has a story to tell. Collectively, they tell Chicago's story.
To hear the statues speak, swipe your smartphone on a nearby sign and get a "call back" from the statue. Some experiences are historic, others comic and others fictional. Ultimately, Statue Stories Chicago aims to persuade people to look at Chicago's public artworks with new eyes. And ears!
