Introducing Greektown’s New Lady of the Lake Sculpture
Greektown Chicago is once again sponsoring the Chicago Sculpture Exhibit (CSE). Annually, a jury selects public artworks to exhibit in different neighborhoods throughout Chicago. The SSA #16 is excited to announce that “Lady of the Lake” was recently installed at Halsted and Monroe Streets. Local artist Carrie Fischer created “Lady of the Lake” using hand carving and concrete sculpting techniques. Fischer explained that her focus is on creating large scale touchable art, allowing for an interaction and connection to the piece. Representing beauty, grace and strength, “Lady of the Lake” was inspired by the female heroes, or “sheroes” we meet in everyday life.
This sculpture will be on exhibit in the Greektown temple at Halsted and Monroe Streets for one year, so stop by to check out the “Lady of the Lake”!
