Neighborhood: 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.

Go see it while you still can
Jul 2020 • Family
If I read correctly, the near future of this piece is very uncertain due to property ownership change, so try to see it before It could possibly be gone. Not my favorite among other significant pieces around the area, but worth checking out as a part of your walking tour nevertheless.

Art in the street
Jun 2019 • Family
You don’t see much of world art famous artists sculptures displaying in open air.

This one is big is size and it is displayed in an area where you can circle around the sculpture: ».

Even if you are not into modern art, it is interested to see it in such environment

Beast...?
Dec 2018
I’ll be upfront i don’t know anything about art. I don’t know what this was made to mean or represent but i do know it was cool and I’m glad I was able to see this massive and beat piece of art on my trip to Chicago.

public art

I like public art displayed in the streets and squares. This huge construction has big open space surrounding. Great place to people watch. It is easy to notice from transport or by walking. It is right in front of Thompson Center.

Outdoor Art
Oct 2018
Not my favorite outdoor art installation in Chicago but still unique and worth your time. Easy to find by the Thompson Center and just a short walk from Millennium Park. Larger than I expected. Some people have written on the sculpture which is disturbing. Children can walk through and under which is a unique way to explore art.

Very different and interesting
Oct 2018 • Couples
The city has several examples of interesting public art and this one is no exception. The “Monument with Standing Beast” is certainly very different and can be seen from some way away.

Adds to the free standing art around the city
Aug 2018 • Couples
While not a must see it is another commitment of the city to famous artists by letting their oversized work add to the cultural distinction that is Chicago.

It's one of those that you may just happen to walk by. Give it a second look.

There is a smaller version in the Chicago Art Institute.

Unusual ...
Dec 2017 • Friends
... and memorable fiberglass sculpture that stands right by the James R. Thompson Center on W. Randolph. The French painter and sculptor Jean Dubuffet is the author of this unusual monument that is one of the examples of Art Brut ('raw art', 'rough art', or 'outsider art' ) -- that is a trend in modern art that claims to be immune to any social influences and also claims to stay independent of the mainstream culture. Hard to judge, but it sure is interesting to look at, especially if the sculpture is supposed to represent a standing beast, a tree, a portal in a particular architectural form. It is definitely eye-catching. And a work of modern art!
