There is, for a start, my column in this paper from 2012, “Faith, hope and statuary.”

More meaty in every way—oh, for a return to the days when newspapers could give writers space for a 4600-word book review—was this 1988 piece in The Reader in which I reviewed new books about sculptor Lorado Taft and public art in Chicago.
