Do you know that weird wall off the purple and brown line? With the list of names that have very little connection with each other? Thanks to WBEZ‘s Curious City, we can finally solve our curiosity. It is called the Freedom Wall, and the only thing connecting those names to each other is that they were responses the artist (Adam Brooks) had when he asked citizens to submit names that they thought had something to do with freedom.
And the blank space under Frank Zappa’s name? Some respondents to Brooks’ survey said that they felt one name could not embody the word freedom. Curious City is looking to complete an updated Freedom Wall to compare the two. How closely do you think the names will match up over twenty years later?
