Rocker Sammy Hagar is the latest sponsor of a public art installation that will honor Chicago's firefighters.

The project features 101 5-foot-tall sculptures of Chicago fire hydrants -- one for each of the city's firehouses.

Each sculpture is painted or decorated by a noted artist, architect or designer.

The sculptures will be located throughout the city beginning Sept. 11. Money raised from sponsoring the hydrants will be used to benefit charities that support fire safety programs and the families of fire victims.
