Chicago in Cook County, Illinois — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
“Rites of Spring”
Milton Horn (1906-1995)
Horn was born in Russia in 1906, emigrated to the United States in 1913 and became a naturalized citizen in 1917. He moved to Chicago in 1950. His commissions included pieces for the West Suburban Temple Har Zion, the National Congress of Parents and Teachers, the City of Chicago and many others.
The sculpture was donated to Lincoln Park Zoo by the Milton Horn Art Trust. It was the artist’s desire that “Rites of Spring” remain accessible to the public, especially to children.
Site selected with the recommendation and support of the Sculpture and Gardens Committee of the Lincoln Park Zoological Society.
Erected 2004 by Milton Horn Art Trust.
