Interactive public art in Millenium Park












It was sunny and hot on Sunday when we walked
through Millenium Park in Chicago.
It felt great to get my feet wet and watch everyone enjoying
the cool water at Crown Fountain.

Designed by Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa,
the Crown Fountain features two 50-foot high glass block towers at
each end of a shallow reflecting pool.
The towers are activated with changing video images and lights,
and water cascades from the top of each.

Hey I've been there. Kate and I checked it out with my sister. I was trying to describe these fountains/art to Todd; now I can just show him!

Hope all is well--
