Located within the Burnham Wildlife Corridor, this projects create an interpretation of a traditional Chinese “scholar’s rock” by sculpting, molding and fabricating a sculpture that emulates the magnificence felt through viewing these rocks. The rock sculpture will stand 7 feet tall and vary in width from 1-3 feet. The sculpture will be painted to represent the beauty and texture of a scholar’s rock. The sculpture will then be placed at the center of a tranquil rock garden with smaller rocks covering the base and one or two small log benches for viewing.
The Chinese American Museum of Chicago is located in the city’s Chinatown community and has the mission of promoting the culture and history of Chinese-Americans in the Midwest through exhibitions, education and research.
