Starting at Chicago Av and E. Lake St - heading South to George Floyd Memorial Square

Carolyn Kopecky created a pig skeleton puppet with a moving neck, mouth and limbs that was handled by two people walking down Lake Street on different days. The pig skeleton puppet, representing the end of the police, is adorned with mushrooms that symbolize the need to detoxify in order for good soil to grow. Floral greenery growing on top of the pig symbolized a fruitful future.
