Chicago’s historic Greektown neighborhood will introduce a new public art exhibit: “My Lyre: Seeing Music in Chicago’s Greektown,” on June 4, 2022, along Halsted Street between Monroe and VanBuren Streets.
A diverse group of artists, including local students, celebrate the ancient Greek instrument, with modern interpretations that reflect the poetry, music and dance associated with the lyre, through 26 creative sculptures.
Drawing from Greek mythology, science, history and personal memories, the artworks will inspire visitors who stroll through Greektown. The sculptures will be displayed through spring 2023.
