Visit our Fanciful Fish in Greektown
Take a stroll down Halsted for this outdoor art exhibit.
Greektown Chicago’s Fanciful Fish sculpture exhibit is a great socially distanced outdoor activity to enjoy this winter! Created by a diverse group of Chicago artists, the 21 sculptures along Halsted Street from Monroe to Van Buren Streets celebrate Greek culture – from mythological gods and seaside vistas to the Greek language.
Treat yourself to a self-guided walking tour of these vibrant artworks, then stop at one of Greektown’s many restaurants and cafes for a carryout meal or warm beverage for the perfect afternoon outing.
An additional fish sculpture, titled Goldie Gives Gratitude, was moved this week from Halsted Street to nearby Rush University Medical Center to thank its healthcare heroes and staff for their tireless efforts during the pandemic. Goldie is showing our gratitude on the 4th floor of Rush’s Atrium building.
