“Founders” Exhibit Four Heads

Chicago-based arts collective Floating Museum displayed this spectacular four-faced bust of the city’s oft-overlooked founders, its indigenous peoples and people of color, along the CTA Green Line in the summer and fall of 2019. The faces portray the first non-native man to settle in what would become Chicago, the French Hatian Jean Baptiste Pointe Du Sable; his wife, Potawatomi tribe member Kitihawa; former Chicago mayor Harold Washington; and the face of a child.

“Founders” Exhibit Four Heads

"We are able to directly track customer traffic caused by the boot, so we know the inflatable boot paid for itself within the first year."

"[There was] fun, excitement, and encouragement for everyone to actually walk under/through [the arch] and it worked.  We have cheerleaders and small children at the finish line by the arch handing out stickers, saying ‘I did it.’ Before we had the arch, [people] would straggle in anywhere."

- Jackie Allen, March of Dimes
