Founders will pop up on once a week on Wednesday’s (July 2019 - September 2019) in community sites adjacent to the Chicago Transit Authority Green Line. The sculpture is part of a series by Floating Museum highlighting historical figures that elevate the stories of indigenous people and people of color, honoring the often-overlooked roles they’ve had in shaping our contemporary world. Floating Museum would like to give a special thanks to our exhibition committee who advised on the sculpture: Alaka Wali, Debra Yepa-Pappan, Kate Swisher, and Etzer Cantave.

In partnership with the Chicago Transit Authority and the Chicago Park District Floating Museum’s Cultural Transit Assembly transforms the Green Line into a moving cultural destination. Activating several parks along the south and west ends of the line, the project serves both to celebrate the cultural work being done in these neighborhoods as well as to strengthen the ties between these spaces.
