Agora is a group of sculptures located on the south side of Grant Park in Chicago, the work of Polish female sculptor Magdalena Abakanowicz (Magdalena Abakanowicz). Most of her works use the human torso as the main element. Agora, originally meant to be a city square, had both political and commercial functions in ancient Greece. It is said that the Chicago city government leased it from Poland. If you take the subway (red line, green line, orange line) to the museum area, get off at Roosevelt station and walk east for two blocks, you can see this work (continue to the east and you will reach the museum area). If you take the red line, Chinatown Station and Roosevelt Station are only 1 station away.
agora is a sculptural community in Chicago, where there are a variety of characteristic sculptures.
This is a paradise for artists, with many interesting sculptures
The most striking thing in the Grant Park between the tall buildings is the sculpture composed of 106 people walking without head or arms. Some of these 106 people like to get together, and some are mavericks, walking in a hurry, looking in different directions. The work taken from the 2006 work "Assembly" by the Polish sculptor is also the origin of the author's subsequent 20,000 pedestrian modeling.
