JANE ADDAMS

Location: Chicago Women’s Park

The Jane Addams memorial sculpture was Chicago’s first major artwork to honour an important woman. Helping Hands commemorates Nobel Peace Prize winner and social reformer Jane Addams (1860 – 1935). Jane Addams established Hull House, the nation’s first settlement house in Chicago’s poor immigrant neighbourhood on the Near West Side. The sculpture by Louise Bourgeois can be found in Chicago Women’s Park.
