Bronzeville


Enter the “Gateway to Bronzeville” and be greeted by a fifteen foot tall statue named the Monument to the Great Northern Migration, by statue designer Alison Saar. All along the Walk of Fame, designed by Geraldine McCullough, you will find plaques, statues and other street furniture which combine ethnic and cultural references about the neighborhood and the people of Bronzeville. In walking through Bronzeville you'll pass a fourteen foot historical map of the neighborhood, cast in bronze. It was designed by Gregg LeFevre.

This 1.5 mile walk helps to identify a neighborhood long passed over for public dollars, but is now being renewed with neighborhood interest. The walk reveals 91 bronze plaques identifying significant characters who once lived here.

You also will find a variety of amazing benches which decorate the streetscape. Thirteen artists were selected to create the twenty four bench sculptures.
