Chicago Day 2: Millennium Park

After a short rest, we went to the Millennium Park again while there is still day light.


This is the back view of “Looking Into My Dreams, Awilda” sculpture from the world renowned Spanish sculptor, Plensa. It stands 38-feet.


The Millennium Monument is a tribute to the individual, corporate and foundation benefactors of Millennium Park. It is a gift from the William Wrigley, Jr. Co.

Although the bean is very reflective from far, there are lots of smudges on it when you look close up. I wonder how often they clean it.


The “Spitting Image”, also known as the Crown Fountain at the Millennium Park. This is another design by artist Jaume Plensa.


The Jay Pritzker Pavilion is the center piece for the Millennium Park. It is the home of the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and the Grant Park Music Festival. It has a capacity of 11,000.


We got a glimpse of one of the summer concert the night before. It was grand.

We intended to walk to the Buckingham Fountain from Millennium Park but it’s getting dark and it looked like the distance is at least 2 blocks away. So, we changed our plan to go for dinner instead. We called Uber for a ride to Lou Minalti’s Pizzeria.
