Chicago Public Art TimeLine /
Chronology of Sculptures in Chicago

My “Public Art in Chicago” website and blogs are dedicated to the sculpture community of Chicago. In making this Chicago Public Art Timeline, I have drawn heavily from the book, “A Guide to Chicago’s Public Sculptures”, by Ira J. Bach and Mary Lackritz Gray. This book has been my guiding force since I started blogging on Public Art of Chicago in 2007.  The Chicago Public Art TimeLine can be considered an offshoot of the Chicago History TimeLine created by art historian par excellence Rolf Achilles.. click here..
