The Agora sculptures are a bunch of headless statues that just crowd around each other. On 1 side, it's really crowded and it slowly moves to the other side where there is more space between them. This is a nice place for some pictures and...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.

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.

106 headless and armless iron sculptures at the south end of Grant Park in Chicago. Designed by Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz. It is rumored to be a child's perspective on a concentration camp memory, but I can't verify that.
