Sir Georg Solti Garden

Location Notes: S Michigan Ave and E Jackson Dr

The relocated bust of Sir Georg Solti from Lincoln Park to Grant Park provides an opportunity to create a high quality cultural and educational botanic garden performance area in Grant Park. By locating the bust created by sculptor Dame Elisabeth Frink, of the acclaimed conductor of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra near Symphony Center, we envision the opportunity to attract visitors with lunchtime concerts in a memorial garden. We have worked with the Chicago Park District to facilitate this move, as well as with Solti’s widow, Lady Valerie Solti, who has expressed interest and believes it appropriately honors her late husband. The Grant Park Conservancy continues to develop ways to fund the garden.
