If Stones Could
Speak - The Chicago Tribune Tower has more than 100 famous stones,
including a moon rock, rock fragments from the Alamo, the Coliseum,
and the Great Wall of China. There are stones from all 50 US states
and many countries. Participants in this project will reserve “check
out” rock fragments and will create projects that share, through the
stone’s point of view, the historical importance surrounding the time
period that it represents.
