The monumental semi-circular bronze «stamp» and its bronze «imprint» - Section.
• A monumental semi-circular bronze «stamp» (about 19 feet high) bearing on its outer skin the mirror image of the text of the First Amendment will be erected in the rotunda of the McCormick museum foundation (Chicago).

Imagine…
all the people to be strong enough together to take hold of this monumental bronze stamp.
Imagine them to be able to go and print every word of the First Amendment all over the soil of America.
Imagine the floor of the rotunda of the McCormick Museum Foundation to be the first place in America where this text is printed.
Imagine the monumental bronze stamp to be always ready for use…
Imagine…
a new way to spread democratic values of freedom.
