The Windy City has forever been a pioneer for arts of all kinds, and the Agora Sculptures in the south end of Grant Park is just another example portraying the artistic genius of the artists here. Designed by Polish Artist Magdalena Abakanowicz, Agora is a group of 106 headless and armless iron sculptures. Abakanowicz, who was brought up during the horrific world War II, is said to draw inspiration for her art from her fear of crowds. The sculptures are said to be her representation of "brainless organisms acting on command, worshiping on command and hating on command". With such an interesting idea behind such unique art, the Agora Sculptures are surely not to be missed.

Agora Sculptures Reviews & Ratings
Agora is definitely an interesting collection of sculptures right in downtown Chicago. It sort of reminds me of dementia or mental illness, I'm not sure why... On a lighter note, If you find yourself in the area it's surely worth a stop.
A homless man spit in my face here. Luckily police were nearby. I also play pokemon go here. Its a nice place.
very interesting place to visit. Feels like I'm in the giants' city since their feet are not pointing identical direction.
The sculptures are nice. They bring a lot of detail. But the main thing is. That they are showing heart of the City. Which is nice. I recommend coming here to see something different. I wish I had public bathrooms.
Nice little art installation right outside the hustle and bustle of the south loop. Though I’m not sure what the artist’s intent is, I’m liken it to what it must feel like walking down the Mag Mile the weekend before Xmas, headless bodies wondering about aimless and shambling along.
