Statue Stories Chicago is a city-wide public arts initiative that brings 30 of Chicago's statues to life. Chicago’s most celebrated writers, actors and comedians were commissioned to create monologues for some of the city’s famous statues. Pass a talking statue, look for the nearby sign, and use your smartphone to scan the sign’s QR Code or type the text in your web browser, and presto—you get a call back from John C. Reilly as Abraham Lincoln, Shonda Rhymes as Miró’s Chicago or Steve Carell as a man clutching a giant fish by the Shedd Aquarium. Each has a story to tell. Together they tell Chicago’s story.
