2 MILLENNIUM PARK
For a true celebration of architecture, art and the outdoors, head north on Michigan Avenue to the 24-acre Millennium Park. The park opened in 2004 after six years of construction, and is characterized by various monumental sculptures. At Crown Fountain, the faces of a thousand Chicagoans are displayed in rotation on 50-foot towers, with their mouths spurting water. Most stunning of all is the 110-ton stainless steel sculpture Cloud Gate, designed by British artist Anish Kapoor to reflect the city’s people, skyline and clouds.
