Chicago’s Fabulous Fountains

Greg​ Borzo ’76 introduces readers to more than 100 outdoor public fountains in his new book Chicago’s Fabulous Fountains (Southern Illinois University Press, 2017). Along with photos by Julia Thiel, he shares short stories about the structures, the artists, and the city, from the serious and historical to the silly and whimsical, such as a pile of bronze dog poo that glistens when wet, to encourage dog owners to clean up after their pets.
