Agora Registers on Curbed's List of Downtown Chicago's Best Public Art

If you're like us and you like strolling around Chicago, you probably like our city's abundance of awesome murals and public art.  Curbed Chicago shows us some of the highlights and one of the Sloop's most prominent spots is on the list:
14. Agora
Agora, Michigan Ave Chicago, IL 60605
At the far south end of Grant Park is Agora, an eerie installation of 106 headless and armless metal figures. Installed in 2006, the nine-foot sculptures come from Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz who has explored the theme of crowds based on her experiences during World War II and Soviet occupation. The Chicago Park District describes Agora as the most important and extensive sculptural installations in Chicago’s recent history.
