Cool to see artwork in a downtown setting. Is a decent walk from the Pier, but gives a good chance to check out things along the way. There is a farmers market in the area of the statue which is pretty cool!

Really larger than it looks in pictures. Tucked away downtown it feels a little quieter in this spot. Walk around the sculpture because it looks different at each angle. The sears tower is looming in the background.

I love that there is a Picasso in the street. The plaza hosts farmers markets and a really cool German Christmas market. It is really a great place to hang out with friends.

Picasso is not my favorite 20th century artist, but this sculpture is a lot of fun. It was especially enjoyable to see the maquette in the Art Institute and then view the larger, finished version.

It's indeed part of Picasso's genius I guess but I just don't like it too much. Nice city square though.

A great place for pictures! Right by the CBS and Morningstar building. We took my brother-in-laws wedding pictures here.

This is a huge statue that the buildings dwarf. But the statue dwarfed us. You can certainly see it up close and personal here. Fun place to visit.

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
