The Great Chicago Fire Hydrants, presented by Wintrust, is a public art exhibition that will celebrate the heroism of Chicago’s firefighters.
Scores of artists will decorate 5-foot tall fiberglass fire hydrants sponsored by local businesses. Organizers plan to install 101 hydrants—one for each Chicago firehouse—at private businesses, parks, plazas, and tourism destinations from Wednesday, September 11 - Monday, November 11.
Following the public exhibition, the hydrants will be auctioned to benefit the 100 Club of Chicago, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the families of fallen first responders.
