Why the Chicago Monument Project? ~~ FAQ


Frequently Asked Questions 

Why is Chicago doing this?  

Chicago joins cities across the country reckoning with the omissions and over-simplifications present in their public art collections. The Chicago Monuments Project intends to grapple with the often unacknowledged – or forgotten – history associated with the City’s various municipal art collections and provides a vehicle for a public dialogue that will elevate new ways to memorialize Chicago’s history more equitably and accurately. 

Are all of these monuments going to be removed?

No, this is not a condemnation of these monuments, but rather this is an opportunity to learn from them. We invite Chicagoans to provide valuable feedback, reflecting on the city’s history and how it should be encapsulated in our public art moving forward.

STAY TUNED HERE:   We will post results as soon as they are announced this Summer!
