Toward the southern part of Grant Park is this installation by a female Polish artist who's name escapes me right now but it is one of my most favorite spots to decompress in Grant Park. Not as touristy or crowded toward this area as well. A definite must see especially if you're staying in the South Michigan Ave area. Enjoy... More

I guess this is named for the agora, the Greek marketplace. Not sure why; the artist is Polish. I have heard she had to leave Poland at a young age and remembered looking up at a sea of feet and legs. As a short person, I get that loud and clear. At first it seems like a curiosity, but it... More

On our way to the Shedd Aquarium we stumbled across this art installation in Grant Park. As I understand it the artist was making a statement against uniformity, and the atrocities of the second world war. The legs are all wearing different pants and facing different directions vs the very neat and orderly images of the Nazis. Well that's what... More

Grant Park is a continuum with Millennium Park and was renovated in recent years adding places to walk and beautiful sculptures. A great place to walk on a sunny day.

Great photo opportunity here we took lots of great pics. Other than that nothing else to do there. The statues are very tall and there are plenty of them so you can the right shot.

There's something about a park in the middle of a bustling city that just gets to me. Grant park is beautiful in the fall, literally picture perfect with yellow and orange leaves scattering across the grass. It's a nice, quiet park with ample space. I imagine it's full of life in the summer and I can't wait to go back... More

This park is a fun area to view and visit while walking on Michigan Avenue, very interesting statues and views of the city south of the Miracle Mile and near the Art Institute.

This sculpture was amazing; a kids point of view in the park. Loved it. Just to realize the detail that each set of legs are going a different way is an amazing theory.

Neighborhood Profile
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 the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
