You have a fabulous site dedicated to Chicago sculpture and their creators. Thanks so much! Wish you would post 4 different views of each piece, one being more interpretive and less documentary to give us a real feel of the experience and presence of the piece.

I have seen and photographed each of the sculptures from Fullerton north to the Totem pole. Most all of them do not have plaque identifying the name of the creator, much less a name. Where/how did you gain that information? I have looked long and hard and not found that information anywhere.
