GLADSTONE PARK — Art lovers can take a trolley tour Saturday of the works of art on display as part of the Chicago Sculpture Exhibit.

The sculpture festival, which is designed to bring art to Chicago's neighborhoods, expanded from Lincoln Park, Lakeview and Bucktown to include Jefferson Park, Gladstone Park and Portage Park for the first time this year, organizers said.

The tour is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Ann Sather restaurant, 909 W. Belmont Ave., and tour sculptures in Lakeview and Lincoln Park before heading west to see the "Twin Souls" sculpture in Jefferson Park, the "Phenomenon" sculpture in Portage Park and "Entwinement II" in Gladstone Park.

The trolley tour will end at Moe’s Cantina in Wrigleyville, 3518 N. Clark St.

All three sculptures are in the 45th Ward, which Ald. John Arena, who is up for re-election, has been working to turn into an arts and culture mecca in an effort to reverse decades of decline and to fill empty storefronts.

The Chicago Sculpture Exhibit was founded in 2002, and focused on Lincoln Park and Lakeview before expanding its focus to the entire city in 2012.
