Long Description:
You have to look up to see them. The source for the Smithsonian listing is "Riedy, James L., "Chicago Sculpture," Chicago: University of Illinois Press, 1981, pg. 126, no. A25" which I own. Here it states that the sculptor's copy is "not too faithful."

The replica of the Parthenon Frieze on the north side of the Art Institute is a replica of sections from the west frieze of the Parthenon, the formal beginning to the frieze.

Excellent detailed photos can be found here: (visit link)
Artist: Martiny, Philip, 1858-1927, sculptor.
