As much as I love Picasso and his art, I feel sorry that this sculpture now happens to be almost invisible on Daley Plaza, as it sits there surrounded by dozens of stands and kiosks, and holiday decorations, and crowds of people doing holiday shopping...More

This is based on a Christmas time visit. This statue alone is gorgeous but when surrounded by the Christkindle Market it's a sight to see!

The Picasso Statue is the most imposing of the public sculptures in downtown Chicago. You have to see it to feel it's size and presence. One of the great Picasso pieces.

Happened to walk past. An interesting sculpture. I don't think I'd make it a destination point but worth a look if in the vicinity.

It's a special steel statue dedicated by the famous artist Picasso. It is situated in the heart of the loop. There is a kind of a fountain in the plaza next to it. Good to admire and take some photos.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
