Definitely worth the walk to the south end of Grant Park. These enormous figures tyrannize your being with their stature and haunting presence.

I was a tourist doing what tourists do best when I walked up on these sculptures. There were few people around so I walked amongst the disembodied legs for a bit. It was fun and very peaceful. I’m not certain of the meaning or history...More

We were on a mission to find something to do on a Sunday morning. This is an interesting place to visit. You will find one set farther away... almost like it it getting away. Nice park. Great for a stroll. Worth a quick visit.

The Agora Sculptures were a magnificent art piece in a quiet park. They really made me feel small. Wonderful thing to witness while taking a stroll.

I felt like I was in a hokey pokey maze. Love the sculptures and the fun that they bring to the park.

Wonderful outdoor sculptures on the parkwith 106 headless and armless iron sculptures at the south end of Grant Park. Designed by Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz. Really an impacting scene as you drive by, and a great place to walk and reflect on their message. Free,

Thanks to Robin Williams for the financial support to bring this display to Chicago. I love the story behind the legs and how it came about. There has to be a lesson to be learned here, I just wish people would absorb the meaning.
