Connoisseur’s Tour of Chicago Sculpture


event description

A West Suburban Affiliates event

Discover the amazing collection of Chicago’s outdoor sculpture during the About Tours fully-narrated driving and walking tour.

Downtown Chicago is home to more than 100 sculptures, mosaics, and paintings in plazas, parks, and lobbies. The dedication of the Picasso in 1967 confirmed that Chicago was a city for the arts. Since then, Chicago’s open-air museum has continued to grow.

Interact with the reflective surface of Cloud Gate by Anish Kapoor in Millennium Park and walk through the Agora by Magdalena Abakanowicz in Grant Park. In the Loop, see the monumental works of Picasso, Miro, DuBuffet, Chagall, and Calder and less visible pieces such as the Hands of Piece by Henri Azaz. You will see traditional sculpture by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, abstract work by Richard Hunt, and new pieces that have recently been installed.

A family-style lunch is included at Buca di Beppo in the River North neighborhood.
