The Picasso sculpture was installed in the 1960's ( I think...I was a kid) in what is now called Daley Plaza. No one really knows what it's supposed to represent, but that's part of the fun. Kids play on it, folks eat lunch nearby.

The statue is a Chicago icon and you can't miss it when walking around the look. Also on the Plaza is an entrance to the underground walkway that goes all the way to Macy's.

I enjoyed visiting this sculpture especially after touring the Picasso exhibit at the Art Institute. It does fit its environment.

No idea, not really a picasso fan but it fills the space in front of the building and Chicago seems proud of it

The Picasso Statue is in the heart of downtown Chicago in Daley plaza. If you're in the area, it's worth swinging by for a quick visit. This statue inspires interpretation - what is it? A dog? A human?
