DNAinfo: Canaryville Artist Tapped to Contribute to ‘Horses of Honor’ Project


BRIDGEPORT — For Erika Vazzana, the call to participate in the city’s newest public art project didn’t come straight from the horse’s mouth.

Instead, it came from a representative of the marketing agency facilitating the project, which asks local artists to paint 50 fiberglass replicas of the police department’s mounted horses that’ll be placed along the Magnificent Mile and auctioned off to raise money for the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.

The statues will be on display through the end of November as part of the “Horses of Honor” initiative benefiting the memorial foundation, which gives money to the families of fallen officers, supplies college funds for their children, and helps pay for rehabilitation and other necessary care for officers who survive injuries in the line of duty.
