  • Description
    Laura Liu Statue in Ping Tom Park

    A life-size bronze statue of Judge Laura Cha-Yu Liu (1966-2016), honoring her life, legacy, and commemorating her many firsts: the first Chinese-American female judge at the Circuit Court of Illinois, the first Chinese-American judge at the Illinois Appellate Court, and the first Chinese-American in Chicago to be elected to public office. Liu died from breast cancer when she was only 49 years old.
     
    The sculpture, made by Eric Blome in 2017, was the first bronze portrait in a Chicago park to depict a woman when it was dedicated on April 15th, 2017. It is located at Ping Tom Park, in Chicago’s Chinatown along the Chicago River, and is also a spectacular viewpoint of the city’s skyline.
