A soaring Picasso statue at Daley Plaza is just one of many impressive public scultures you can find throughout Chicago!

The thing I love about pieces like this is they add so much character to a neighborhood/city when they're scattered around. I'm not an art aficionado, but I wanted to find this piece along my way to the Willis Tower. It was fun to look...More

She's wonderful, huge and distinct. Kudos, Chicago, for your efforts to provide artwork for the world to see in an open forum!

Picasso said this was a cross between his old girl friend and a chess piece. But I sure could not see it but it is very interesting

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
