Join Beth Sair for a presentation of the Talking Statues of Chicago and watch her breathe new life into our city’s spectacular public art collection. These compelling stories are written by Chicagoans, voiced by Chicago actors and co-produced by Chicago theaters. Find out which set of statues speak as the unofficial mascots of Chicago and which statue claims he actually discovered America 500 years before Columbus.
