Guide Description

The streets of Chicago hold some of most renowned and iconic sculptures that you’ll find in any city in the country. This tour highlights works from classical to modern, from works that figurately and literally reflect their surroundings to others that invite contemplation and, even, participation. The artwork found in the streets and building lobbies of Chicago offer a fascinating frame of reference to explore the culture, history and architecture of the city.

The tour begins outside the Art Institute of Chicago and takes you on a fascinating journey as you wind your way through the city, in and out of buildings and ultimately to Millennium Park.

Stops include:
• Alexander Calder’s Flamingo in Federal Plaza
• Works by Frank Stella in the interior lobby of one of Chicago’s most dramatic contemporary skyscrapers
• Famed works by Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, Henry Moore
• The fascinating and immensely popular Cloud Gate (aka The Bean)

This tour of Chicago's Urban Sculpture Garden includes about 30 minutes of material and will take you about 90 minutes to complete – though we strongly suggest that you take some additional time to enjoy and appreciate the works and their environs.
