Statue Stories Chicago Writing Workshop

  • Maggie Daley Park Field House 337 East Randolph Street Chicago, IL, 60601 United States (map)

If statues could talk, what stories would they tell?  Statue Stories Chicago has given voices to over two dozen statues throughout the city.  Presented by Sing London and co-sponsored by the City of Chicago and Chicago Park District, this project was made possible by The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.

Julia Bachrach helped coordinate the project on behalf of the Chicago Park District and she also wrote the monologue for the Alexander Von Humboldt Monument in Humboldt Park.  Julia Bachrach will lead this Chicago Ideas Week workshop along with writer MT Cozzola, poet Quraysh Ali Lansana, and social media specialist Jessie Jury. For more information visit
