A new book about Chicago’s monumental art also offers an opportunity to do good.
During this, Chicago’s “Year of Public Art,” photographer and author Larry Broutman has brought together a stunning photographic tribute to Chicago’s public memorials, statues, fountains, and iconic places all over the city. Along with the 250 full-color photographs, a history of each subject and its artist are featured.
Published by Lake Claremont Press/Everything Goes Media, Chicago Monumental is a visual journey and a practical guide to these Chicago gems. The book has won two awards: the Midwest Book Award for best interior design and an IPPY (Independent Publisher) Award in the Great Lakes Nonfiction category.
Broutman is an accomplished photographer whose work includes projects for Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo, Children’s Memorial Hospital Clinic, and The Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. He is also a finalist in Africa Geographic Magazine’s 2017 Photographer of the Year contest.
All author proceeds from Chicago Monumental go to the Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Disabled, and Access Living. To purchase the book, visit Lake Claremont / Everything Goes Media.
