The majestic beauty and awesome potential of the Great Lakes have inspired quite a range of artistic endeavors, including lndian lore, the images of romantic nineteenth century poets, and Chicago's example of this tradition, Lorado Taft’s great bronze sculpture, “The Fountain of the Great Lakes." The fountain is in the formal garden of the Art Institute facing Michigan Avenue and was dedicated in 1913, the first commission of the B.F. Ferguson Fund.
