Celebrate the Water Tower 150

The Magnificent Mile Association will install beautifully designed, 5-foot tall replicas of the historic Water Tower along the public way from
late August through early October.

Only 25 sculptures will be created and a limited quantity remains. Take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity by sponsoring or purchasing an iconic Water Tower sculpture.

Sponsors have the option to host the sculpture in front of their business, or Association staff will secure a premiere location along The Mag Mile!
